Leicestershire Report: The Classroom Environment.
Schlesinger, Joy
In the industrial Midlands of England, the County Education Authority in Leicestershire County has jurisdiction over approximately 250 primary schools and 50 secondary schools. A child attending an infant or junior school works at his own pace, is creative and spontaneous, and learns on his own terms. Principals are given complete autonomy and may innovate or experiment without interference. Within this nonrestrictive system, educational issues are discussed with the Advisory Center, which is composed of educators who are available to consult with teachers. A problem exists because some of the schools in the county, particularly secondary schools, do not subscribe to this system of education. University admission is based almost entirely on difficult, standardized examinations, which children take at the end of secondary school. This report describes the classroom environment of two infant schools (for ages 5 to 7), two junior schools (for ages 7 to 11), one primary (infant and junior) school, and two high schools (for ages 11 to 15).
