HC Deb 11 July 1922 vol 156 cc1074-5W

asked the President of the Board of Education what opportunities can be offered to teachers in special schools of visiting Swiss, German, and French educational establishments where similar problems are dealt with; and if he will consider the desirability of an interchange of visits of teachers from these different countries to British schools in respect to special school education, and especially of the economies now properly under consideration?


Permission could doubtless be obtained from the Governments of the countries named for English teachers in special schools to visit institutions of a similar character abroad, and if I receive any proposals from school authorities I will consider them on their merits and in relation to the expenditure involved. But the present conditions in these countries are not very favourable for the suggested interchange of visits.
