Progress of the Education Bill

Nature volume 101, page 277 (06 June 1918) | Download Citation



DESPITE the pressure of other urgent measures and the consequent limitations as to time, and in spite also of the persistent opposition of certain Members, good progress is being made with the Education Bill in the Honse of Commons. Already clause 10, the crucial clause of the measure, which is to secure the continued education of young persons from fourteen to eighteen years of age who have entered into employment, has been reached. It is to be hoped that the endeavour of Mr. Fisher to preserve the contact of adolescent youth with the humaner side of life during these formative years, whilst giving effect to all reasonable opportunities for enhancing both knowledge and aptitude in the chosen vocation, may receive complete support and be assured of legal enactment.
