THE report of the Board of Education for the. X year 1935, published under the title “Education in 1935”, is, in the main, like those of previous years. The volume is, as usual, a compendium of facts and figures duly arranged in successive chapters, dealing all too briefly with subjects which range from the elementary school to adult education, as well as the museums at South Kensington and Bethnal Green which are financed out of the Board's vote, and the whole miscellany is supplemented by tables of statistics, of which it may safely be said that they are more detailed and elaborate than those which are supplied by the Ministry of Education of any other European country. It is, in fact, not so much an account of ‘Education in 1935’ as a bare record, with little by way of comment or suggestion to relieve it, of the Board's administration during the year in question.
