Technical Education in Northern Ireland after Partition: A Case Study of the Work of a Newly-Formed Local Education Authority, County Down 1925-1933
Beale, George
Journal of Educational Administration and History, v38 n1 p89-106 Apr 2006
On the partition of Ireland in 1921, the Northern Ireland Ministry of Education assumed control of the educational services which had been previously administered by four independent bodies in Dublin. The Education Act (Northern Ireland) 1923 created the county councils and county borough councils of the new devolved state the local education authorities in their areas and imposed on them certain duties for the establishment of machinery for the local administration of education. This paper considers the role of a newly-formed single county authority in the implementation of technical education in its area. The historical background and the effects of legislation are discussed and the authority's work relating to the transfer of schools and development and progress of this branch of education are assessed during the early years of the new administration. (Contains 2 figures, 5 tables and 39 notes.)
