Excerpts from "Teacher Education and Training" (the James' Report), issued in the United Kingdom early in 1972, comprise the bulk of this newsletter. James recommends that "all teachers should be entitled to release with pay for inservice education and training on a scale not less than the equivalent of one term in every seven years, and, as soon as possible, on a scale of one term in five years." This recommendation is the major part of the proposed "third cycle" of teacher education--inservice education. Part II of a French translation of the German text on the principles of a reform of upper-secondary education agreed to by the Ministers of the Lander contains the details of a reform proposal aimed at creating the "functional structures for individualising the education of adolescents." Excerpts from the chapters "The Parents, the Family and the Child,""Ability and Attainment," and "The Schools" from "From Birth to Seven" published by the (British) National Children's Bureau demonstrate how wide the range of educational disadvantage is among a sample of 98 percent of the children born in England, Scotland and Wales during one week in 1958. Data on reading and arithmetic ability from the ongoing longitudinal study are presented and discussed in terms of the effects of social class, class size, and parental education. (AL)
