HC Deb 12 March 1912 vol 35 c1068W
Captain FABER

asked the President of the Board of Education if he will consider the advisability of retiring school teachers at the age of sixty, seeing; that their mode of life is an arduous one?


The proposal to retire school teachers compulsorily at the age of sixty is not one which the Board of Education is able to adopt at the present time, having regard to the enormous cost to the State if a pension of a reasonable amount is to be made available for the teachers.
