U' Students Study Britain's
Secondary School System

Great Britain's secondary schoolv
system was studied this summer
by a team of University education
school students who traveled to
England to study its problems and
A class of 29 students enrolled
in Education A-226, "A Work-
shop in International Education,"
headed by Prof. Claude A. Eggert-
sen, evaluated" the complicated sys-
tem by which students are chosen
for British schools and universi-
The amount and quality of edu-
cation a child gets is determined
by examinations given to students
at the age of "eleven plus."
On the basis of the results,
students are assigned to a gram-
mar, a grammar-type or a sec-
ondary, modern school.
The secondary schools, who take
pupils who placed in the top 20
per cent of the examination takers,
prepares students to enter a uni-
versity after six years of study if
they can pass another qualifying
test at the age of 15.
Prepare Students
The grammar-type schools also
prepare students for entrance into
a university but stress technical,
rather than stiff academic courses.

The secondary-modern schools
give the majority of British chil-
dren a general education which
terminates at the age of 15.
This system of selective educa-
tion was developed in Great Bri-
tain after World War II and is
now being openly criticized by
segments of the British public.
Prof. Eggertsen said British soci-
ety's need is to "Get the child to
the mines at 15 or to the labora-
tories at 21." The group's studies
found the educational system an
effective method of filling this
need and supplying Britain with
much-needed labor.
British critics of the system say
it should be simplified by revamp-
ing it to resemble the American
secondary school, which supplies
the student with a general back-
ground with which he may either
enter a university or go to work.
Another criticism of British edu-
cation is that a child's educational
future should not be decided until
he is older than 11 years old.
Prof. Eggertsen described "parity
of esteem," as the policy of paci-
fying with modern schools those
who will not enter a university.
