Miss Joyce Lang, Kidbrooke and "The Great Comprehensives Debate": 1965-2005
Limond, David
History of Education, v36 n3 p339-352 May 2007
In 1964-65 a teacher at London's Kidbrooke School gave a speech that appeared critical of the Labour government's nascent comprehensivization policy. A "Times" editorial based on her comments influenced the tone and content of the crucial parliamentary debate of January 1965, which continues to have implications for the organization of schools in Britain. (Contains 78 footnotes.)
