§ Mr. Whitaker
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what proportions of each of the main types of school in the country are co-educational for their pupils, and which have both male and female teachers, respectively.
§ Mr. Crosland
In January 1966, the proportions of schools with boys and girls on their rolls expressed as percentages of all schools in each category, were as follows:
Per cent. Maintained primary 98 Secondary modern 63 Maintained grammar 35 Technical schools 41 Comprehensive schools 68 Other maintained secondary 66 Special schools 76 Direct grant grammar 1 Independent schools recognised as efficient 24 Other independent schools 76
I regret that similar information about which of the schools employ both men and women teachers is not available.
