HC Deb 09 September 1887 vol 321 c4
MR. WOODALL (Hanley)

asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, Whether he is prepared to modify the Regulations under which grants are made to evening schools, so as to enable children attending public elementary day schools to avail themselves of evening classes in drawing and modelling on similar conditions to those that have been adopted for the encouragement of instruction in cookery?


According to the Rules in the Minute of the 8th of March, the time-table must provide for at least one and a half-hour's instruction in drawing during the week; and there is nothing to prevent day scholars availing themselves of evening classes for the purposes of this instruction. Modelling, as nay hon. Friend is aware, is now made a second-grade subject under the Science and Art Department, and can be taught in evening classes, which are, of course, open to scholars in public elementary schools.
