It is a very brief (wartime paper rationing?) utterly one-sided history of education with a brief look at what might happen next. Some wonderful quotes:
- HMI "move quietly among the schools befriending teachers".
- "A wise head leaves his staff free to compose their own syllabuses within a general framework."
- Examinations exercise "considerable control and sometimes tyranny over pupil and teacher alike".
- "All recent researches of psychology compel us to think more of the individual child .... it becomes more and more difficult to reconcile a rigid and centralised scheme of examinations with this."
