HC Deb 01 March 1900 vol 79 c1437
SIR MICHAEL FOSTER () London University

I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education whether in the impending organisation of secondary education, and more particularly in the appointment of a secretary, due regard will be had, apart from any special provision for technological training, to the importance of securing adequate recognition of scientific teaching in secondary schools.


Yes; the Government is fully alive to the importance of scientific teaching in secondary schools; and will take care that nothing is done in the organisation of the Board of Education to impede its efficiency and progress.
