HC Deb 11 April 1907 vol 172 c374

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland whether, before the programme of work for senior students drawn up by the provincial committees for the training of teachers is put in operation, he, as Vice-President of the Scottish Education Department, will satisfy himself that, while due provision is made for professional studies, nothing is done to interfere with the progress of the students in their general education.


The proposals of the provincial committees for a programme of work for their senior students require the approval of the Department under Article 18 of the Regulations for the Preliminary Education and Training of Teachers, and, as the Minister responsible for the decisions of the Department, I will see that the proposals sanctioned make due provision for the general education of the students as distinct from their professional training.
