HC Deb 30 March 1909 vol 3 cc302-3W

asked the Lord Advocate if he will state the names of the counties in Scotland in which either agriculture or a course of instruction designed with special reference to agricultural conditions is taught in secondary schools; the name of the school in each county; and the number of pupils in attendance?


So far as is known to the Department, instruction in agriculture does not form part of the regular curriculum of any secondary school in Scotland, but courses of instruction in agriculture are given at suitable centres in most, if not all, of the counties of Scotland by properly qualified officers of the agricultural colleges. These courses are sometimes given at secondary schools and sometimes elsewhere.
