Transcript 74 great BRITAIN after the war. 3. Should we not make the physical well-being of the child a primary consideration? If so, we require medical inspection to be supplemented in all cases by medical treatment (through school clinics, dentistry, etc.); plentiful provision of. playgrounds, baths, gymnasiums, etc., as well as ample time for drill, dancing, gardening, and sports; the grant of food, boots, and clothing wherever the child is found to be going without. (How shall we deal with the culpable parent? Is " Recovery of Cost" practicable?) 4.

We cannot have a separate school or & separate set of teachers for each child. But we can diversify the training that we are able to provide, so as to meet more accurately than is possible with even the best " common schooling " the requirements of varying gifts and vocations.
