HC Deb 04 February 1913 vol 47 cc1973-4

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether it is the intention of the Board of Education (Scotland) to drop the study of science in the third year of the intermediate course in Scottish higher grade and secondary schools in the case of pupils who wish to take up the study of Greek; and whether, before any such change is made, he will consult the general opinion of teachers and educationalists in Scotland on the subject?

The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. McKinnon Wood)

The answer is in the negative. It is not proposed to drop the study of science in the intermediate course. All that is intended is to deal with special cases where it is thought desirable that the student should specialise in Greek or some other subject, in which case a modification of the course of study may be allowed.
