§ 59 and 60. Mr. ASTOR
asked (1) whether the standard required to qualify as an acting teacher is higher than that required from students who have undergone a course in a training college; and (2) whether the standard of the acting teachers' examination has been steadily raised during the last six years, with the result that there has been a great decrease in the percentage of teachers passing recently; and whether, in consequence, there is now a very small chance for a teacher who is unable to incur the expense 1369 of a course in a training college being able to become a fully qualified teacher?
I have nothing to add to the answers I gave on 27th March to the Noble Lord the Member for Cardiff to similar questions, copies of which I am sending the hon. Member.
