The educational movements that have been taking place in Great Britain during the past two or three years have aroused widespread interest among teachers and publicists in this country. This report is an attempt to analyze these movements and to indicate their significance in the broader movement for reconstruction. The educational reforms that have already been introduced and the developments that are promised for the future are not merely the result of an emotional reaction induced by the war. Their meaning will be entirely lost unless their position in the wider program is realized. The present report aims accordingly to give in broad outline the general features of the developments of the past few years. It makes no attempt to deal exhaustively with the course of educational spotlight or progress during this time. In many cases, this would be impossible. The influences of the war on education have not yet spent themselves and to that extent it has not been deemed wise to deal with certain topics that will bear fruitful study at a later date. This paper deals with the course of education and school medical inspection during the past few years, with the proposals for the reform of secondary education, with the various Government reports on different branches of education, and finally with the developments that led up to the passage of the education act in England and the significance of the act itself. A similar but briefer account is given of educational conditions in Scotland. Ireland is included although her educational system is unlike those of England and Wales or Scotland. Contents include: (1) Introduction; (2) England: The schools during the war; (3) Medical inspection of schools; (4) Education of working boys and girls; (5) Secondary education during the war; (6) The position of science in the educational system; (7) Position of modern languages; (8) Tendencies in secondary education; (9) Salaries and pensions; (10) Adult education; (11) Educational reconstruction and public opinion; (12) Education Act, 1918; (13) Scotland: The schools during the war; (14) Teacher's salaries; (15) The reform of education; and (16) The Scottish education bill.
