HC Deb 27 January 1913 vol 47 cc1006-7W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he can state for 1901–11 the number of men and women, respectively, engaged in the public educational system of the United Kingdom, namely, elementary schools (including pupil teachers), secondary schools, technical institutes, schools of art, I colleges, and university councils?


The figures in the attached Return relate to England and Wales only, and to the year 1910–11. They show the number of teachers only; the Board do not possess records as to the number of persons otherwise employed in connection with education. The figures are confined to institutions in receipt of Grants from the Board of Education. Part-time teachers are counted once for each institution in which they serve; the number of individual teachers is, therefore, less than shown in the table—
