An Education Service for the Whole Community.
Inner London Education Authority (England).
The report looks at the education service in Inner London as a whole and proposes developments designed to enable it to serve more fully the needs of the whole community. Attention is drawn to the important aspects of the community in Inner London and its problems. The report goes on to describe some of the new developments which have taken place. It refers to steps already taken to draw together the diverse aims of the service and examines the way change occurs. It proposes a strategy of innovation which relies on the creativity of the educational institutions in responding to the needs of the community and the individuals who comprise it. Within this concept of the community school there is a need for fuller understanding among those involved in the education service as a whole, for a strengthening of associations between its parts and movement toward closer integration, and for a more organic relationship with the whole community in its many divergent manifestations. This is achieved by looking at the major sectors of the service, youth and adult services, and the community as it relates to primary schools, secondary schools, special schools, further and higher education, and colleges of education.
