HC Deb 04 August 1906 vol 162 cc1796-7
MR. YOXALL (Nottingham, W.)

To ask the President of the Board of Education, whether, under paragraph 8 of the Regulations of the Board for Secondary Schools, a scholar may be placed in the course of one year for certain subjects and in the course of another year for other subjects, according to the child's capacity, or whether if a child be placed in or promoted to any special part of the course, he must follow that course in all subjects.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The usual practice is for a scholar to be placed in a certain year's course for all subjects; but where circumstances render it expedient, or better for the scholar, the method referred to in the first part of the Question may be followed.
