HC Deb 04 November 1920 vol 134 c607W

asked the President of the Board of Education if the teachers in the schools under his supervision are strictly carrying out the syllabus prescribed; whether certain teachers are inculcating doctrines inimical to the State; and, if so, what steps he purposes taking to prevent this subversive propaganda?


The Board do not prescribe any syllabus of general instruction for use in grant-aided schools. I have no information which would justify me in believing that teachers in such schools are abusing their position in the manner suggested.
