Education for Liberal Democracy: Fred Clarke and the 1944 Education Act
Ku, Hsiao-Yuh
History of Education, v42 n5 p578-597 2013
Fred Clarke (1880-1952), an English educationist, emerged as a leading figure with his liberal approach alongside such key figures as R. H. Tawney and Cyril Norwood in the reform leading to the 1944 Education Act. Many of his reform proposals, which were provided by the new Act, reflected his ideals of liberal democracy. Nevertheless, his contribution to the process of the legislation has not been examined thoroughly. Therefore, this paper explores his positions on educational issues in various debates and his approaches towards the reform. It also evaluates the extent to which the 1944 Education Act was in line with Clarke's ideals and proposals so that a comprehensive assessment of Clarke's contribution to the legislation can be made.
