§ 48. Mr. G. Macdonald
asked the President of the Board of Education the number of head teachers responsible for any one class, giving separate figures for Lancashire; and whether any action is being taken to render this unnecessary?
In England and Wales on 31st March, 1936, there were 17,409 head teachers (out of a total of 29,479) in charge of a class. The corresponding figures for Lancashire were 1,485 and 3,177. The number and proportion of head teachers in charge of a class are decreasing year by year, and I do not think any special action is called for at the present time.
