HC Deb 02 March 1967 vol 742 c126W
20. Mr. William Price

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he will seek to amend the Education Act, 1944 to ensure a more democratic system of electing school governors.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

The Department is currently grant-aiding a study by University of London Institute of Education of the functions of school managers and governors. Their report is likely to be ready next year. My right hon. Friend will wish to study this report and the comments by local authority and teachers associations on the Plowden recommendations before deciding what further action may be desirable.
