Immigrant Pupils in England: The L. E. A. Response.
Townsend, H. E. R.
One difficulty in decentralized school systems is that the experiences of one local educational agency which may be relevant to the work of the others are not readily shareable. To obviate this, in December 1969, the Department of Education and Science (England) commissioned the National Foundation for Educational Research to undertake a two to three year research project starting in April 1970, concerning educational arrangements for schools with immigrant pupils. The purpose of the project was to make available to the Department, Local Educational Agencies (LEA's), staffs of schools, colleges and universities, and, in fact, to all concerned in education in multi-racial schools, the fullest information of current practices and something of their impact on children and teachers in the schools. The project was planned in three stages: a survey of administrative provisions in LEA's; a survey of organization in a sample of primary and secondary schools; and, intensive observation and attitude assessment in a smaller sample of schools.
