Transcript GREAT BRITAIN AFTER THE WAR. 73 sequent legislation, the Local (Education) Authority is legally responsible for physical as well as mental health and development. Under the Public Health Acts, as lately elaborated, the Local (Health) Authority has special responsibilities for Maternity and Infancy. An efficient educational system must obviously be grounded on the nation's babies being ' well born ' and well nurtured. It must therefore include arrangements for (a) Adequate pre-natal protection of, and provision for, all mothers; (b) an efficient Midwifery service and Maternity Clinic; (c) a complete scheme of Infant Protection and Care wherever required; (d) whatever is needed by local circumstances in the way of Schools for Mothers, Creches and Nursery Schools. The nation has hitherto killed, each year, as many of its own infants under three years old as the Germans have killed of its soldiers and sailors in two years of the most sanguinary war ever known. Are we to continue this slaughter? The student should consider from this standpoint what changes may be required in (a) men's wages ; (b) women's wages, hours and conditions of employment; (c) the present Maternity and Sickness Benefits under the National Insurance Acts (which fail to provide for wives who do not go out to work); (d) Rural and Urban Housing, etc. B.—Elementary Schooling. 1. Has not the time come to insist on compulsory full-time attendance, with absolutely no exemptions, throughout the British Isles, for every boy or girl up to the age of fifteen? Any kind of wage-earning employment in or out of school hours should be illegal (the employer being, as at present, punished for any breach). 2. Might not parents be made interested in their children's welfare, and induced to realise their responsibility, by consulting them more about their children? This might mean much more than inviting their attendance at "parents' meetings," "open days," school concerts, etc. The insistence of the School Nurse upon the parents' co-operation in securing the children's cleanliness has been extraordinarily effective. The success of Schools for Mothers and Health Visitors points the way to a development of the School Attendance Officer into a Child Visitor, concerned for the health and progress of the scholar^. /
