HC Deb 26 May 1966 vol 729 cc127-8W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) what action he is taking to encourage a more varied experience for teachers in training; (2) what he is doing to encourage teacher-training colleges to ensure that as many teachers in training as possible gain experience of a comprehensive school.

Mr. Crosland

The colleges of education are already concerned to give their students by observation and school practice as wide an experience as their location and other circumstances permit.

Experience with comprehensive schools will grow as the number of schools of the type increases.
