Education in Britain.
Central Office of Information, London (England).
British education from nursery school to university, and particularly its organizational characteristics, is described broadly in this pamphlet. After an introduction which discusses general policies, administration and expenditure, the information presented falls under four main headings: (1) Schools (management, nursery and primary schools, secondary schools, independent schools, special educational needs, teachers, the curriculum, religious education in schools, educational standards, educational aids, secondary school examinations, the health and welfare of school children, and school building); (2) Post-school Education (institutions, finance, students, higher education, adult education, and teaching methods); (3) Educational Research; and (4) Educational Links Overseas (educational exchanges, overseas students in Britain, and the teaching of English). The booklet ends with a list of addresses of government departments and education-related organizations, and a bibliography of official and other relevant publications. (KH)
