The Establishment of English Primary Education 1941-1946
Richards, Colin
Education 3-13, v34 n1 p5-10 Mar 2006
The terms "primary education" and "primary schools" were in use long before 1945. However, it was not until 1 April 1945 that primary education became the first of three statutory stages of the English education system. At that time, primary education faced an uncertain future because of the enormous problems it had inherited from the elementary school tradition. This article charts the early challenges that were faced during the years of World War II and immediate post-war period.
