Transcript GREAT BRITAIN AFTER THE WAR. 75 far do wealth and class prejudices stand in the way of such a hierarchy of educational specialisation as this ideal postulates?) 1. For all the intellectually abler boys and girls from the Elementary Schools—not merely for '' budding geniuses ''— no less than for those from " upper-class " homes, there must be Secondary Schooling up to the age of eighteen. Mere free schooling is not enough. (No larger percentage of Chicago boys and girls get Secondary Schooling than those of London.) Wherever necessary, by a vast multiplication of Maintenance Scholarships, full maintenance must be provided for any scholar adjudged fit for Secondary Schooling. 2. The elementary scholars who are not selected to proceed to the secondary schools, none the less need the best possible education; at least, during early adolescence (up to eighteen), and perhaps also during late adolescence (say up to twenty- one ). We suggest the legal prohibition of employment for more than 30 hours a week, and the provision of education for (say) another 20 or 30 hours. (Would any modification of this arrangement be necessarv in agricultural and in certain indus- trial areas?) This education ought to include not only technological instruction, but also the appropriate 'adolescent' fprais of physical exercise, plenty of good novels, poetry and other literature, geography, history, economics, civics, the elements of physics, mechanics, physiology, psychology, nature-study and gardening. (How far ought the boy's future career to determine his education during youth? Ought the girl to be trained primarily for the home or primarily for production? Is it " undemocratic ' to beetow the must pains and money upon the education of the most gifted boys and girl s ?) 3. Every inducement to be offered (including not only an adequate, or, rather, a generous, scale of salaries, but also public honour) in order to secure the ablest and best men and women in the community as teachers in the elementary, the secondarv, and the continuation schools no less than in the University Professoriate—in recognition of the fact that the future of the nation depends more upon its teachers than upon its generals, its admirals, or its Cabinet Ministers. D.—The Universities. 1. The educational advantages offered by the two old national Universities of Oxford and Cambridge in England (equally with the four in Scotland and the newer Universities
