HC Deb 20 February 1922 vol 150 c1522W

asked the President of the Board of Education if he is aware that instruction in the development of mental faculty or instruction in the cultivation of selected mental processes is the basis of special lessons in mind-training which have been offered to the public in recent years; and if he has considered whether it would be advisable to include some instruction of this kind in the teaching in elementary and secondary schools?


Any practical suggestions for the improvement of the teaching given in elementary and secondary schools receive the Board's careful consideration, but in the absence of more definite indications of the methods which the hon. Member has in mind, I am unable to answer his question.

Forward to
