§ 26. Mr. PARKER
asked the President of the Board of Education how many appointments to the ranks of assistant inspectors of elementary schools have been made in the last five years; how many of these were obtained by graduates of Oxford and Cambridge; how many were graduates of other universities; and how many had had two or more years' experience as teachers in public elementary schools?
Sixty-three appointments of assistant inspectors of public elementary schools in England have been made in the last five years. Of these, four were graduates of Oxford, three of Cambridge and 16 of other universities. Forty-two of these inspectors had had two or more years' experience as teachers in public elementary schools before they were appointed to the inspectorate.
