§ Mr. Alfred Morris
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if it is his intention to exercise his powers under section 19(c) of the Education Act 1981 to make special provision for recognition of (a) teachers and (b) teacher training within Steiner schools; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Dunn
As the right hon. Member is aware, the advice given by the Advisory Committee on the Supply and Education of Teachers on the subject of teacher training for special education includes recommendations about the training provided by the Steiner movement. My right hon. Friend is considering this advice and will announce his decision as soon as possible.
