A Day Contination School at Work
Excerpt from A Day Contination School at Work: Papers by Twelve ContributorsThe scope of this book is fairly indicated by the title. It deals with a Day Continuation School - or, more correctly, two such schools - actually at work. No attempt is made to cover the whole question of Continued Education. For instance, rural schools and their peculiar difficulties are not included at all.Nor has uniformity of style or treatment been aimed at by the several contributors. On the contrary, there will be found much divergence of view, some overlapping, and even occasional contradictions. The main point is that each contribution is the outcome of personal experience in some aspect of the work.The various sections which follow were written at different times during 1918 and 1919 - some during the War, others after the Armistice, some before and some after the passing of the 1918 Education Act. Of even more consequence, perhaps, is the fact that the period of compilation coincided with a time of considerable development in the actual schools around which the book mainly centres. Having worked for some years on the basis of one compulsory and one voluntary half-day per week for all students under eighteen, these schools were re-arranged in September 1919, so that each student under sixteen attended for two half-days, while the arrangement of a compulsory half-day and a voluntary one was retained for those over sixteen. In this way the spirit of the 1918 Act is fully complied with, while its provisions for the older students are exceeded in various ways.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
