Corporate Life and the Training of Character The full Committee has sat 35 days between November and Novemberand has examined 89 witnesses see Appendix IA. In Julythe Committee appointed a Drafting Sub-Committee consisting of six of its members, with Mr WA Brockington as Chairman and with power, subject to the approval of the President of the Board of Education, to co-opt members from outside.
The Drafting Sub-committee met on 32 occasions between September and November We take this opportunity of thanking our witnesses for the valuable evidence which they put before us, and also all those other organisations and persons whose names will be found in Appendix IB who were good enough to furnish us with memoranda, specimen syllabuses of work, statistics and other data bearing on our inquiry.
We desire to thank Professor HA Harris and Professor Cyril Burt, who furnished us with valuable memoranda on the physical and mental development of children between the ages of seven and eleven which we have printed as Appendices II and III, respectively, to this Report. Mr Young's work in the preparation of the Historical Chapter has been especially valuable.
We cannot end without recording our sense of the loss which the Committee has sustained by the death of Sir Graham Balfour in October He has been a member since He had won the affection as well as the respect of his fellow members, and he contributed generously both to their deliberations and to the shaping of their conclusions.
The boys and girls concerned have left the infant school; in a few years they will be entering one type or another of secondary school.
In the meantime, to the number of approximately 2,, they are attending for a period of four years, almost one half the whole period of compulsory education, the educational institution appropriate to children of their age, which is most conveniently described as the primary school.
The problems are numerous and urgent. A school is at once a physical environment, a training ground of the mind, and a spiritual society. Are we satisfied that in each of these respects the primary schools of today are all that, with the knowledge and resources at our command, we have the power to make them?
Are their buildings and physical surroundings as conducive to health and vitality as may reasonably be demanded? Is their curriculum humane and realistic, unencumbered by the dead wood of a formal tradition, 1 See the Note on page iii relating to the nomenclature used in this Report.
Are their methods of organisation and the character of their equipment, the scale on which they are staffed, and the lines on which their education is planned, of a kind best calculated to encourage individual work and persistent practical activity among pupils, initiative and originality among teachers, and to foster in both the spirit which leaves the beaten path and strikes fearlessly into new fields, which is the soul of education?
What are the deficiencies, if any, which most hamper their work, and by what measures may it be hoped such deficiencies will be removed?
Like other parts of the educational system, the education of children between seven and eleven is in a state of more than ordinarily rapid growth. What is true today will be irrelevant tomorrow, and to attempt a summary answer to these questions would be unprofitable.
We discuss some of them in greater detail in the body of our report. It may be serviceable, however, to emphasise at this stage certain of the larger issues which call for consideration, and to indicate briefly the most fundamental of the conditions on which, as we believe, the further progress of primary education will depend.
The first condition is that the special function of the primary school should be clearly conceived, and that the vital importance of that function should be recognised as it deserves.Port Manteaux churns out silly new words when you feed it an idea or two.
Enter a word (or two) above and you'll get back a bunch of portmanteaux created by jamming together words that are conceptually related to your inputs..
For example, enter "giraffe" and you'll get back words like "gazellephant" and "gorilldebeest". 2. Which end of the pencil to write with; 3. Hand and arm muscle control; 4. How to grip the pencil; 5. How to stop the paper from moving; 6.

Hadow Report The Primary School. [page iii] NOTE ON THE NOMENCLATURE USED IN THE REPORT. In this Report, as in our Report on the Education of the Adolescent (), we use 'Primary' for education up to the age of eleven, and 'Secondary' for education from the age of eleven till the end of school life.
For the sake of convenience, 'Primary School' is used both for a school taking children. I've been reading the Enterprise relaunch novels beginning with Last Full Measure, and this book continues to deliver! In this installment, we continue toward the Romulan War, and we get the backstory on what became the infamous Kobayashi Maru academy training scenario.
I enjoy a meaty, enthralling brick of fiction as much as the next peanut, but sometimes my poor, overworked brain can only handle small chunks of writing, be that fiction or it’s evil, fact-based foe, non-fiction. Free business-day shipping within the U.S.
