§ MR. A. HUTTON (York, W.R., Morley)
I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education how many pupil teachers have been presented during the last three years at the scholarship examinations; how many have failed; and in how many cases have the Education Department used the powers under Articles 34 and 64 of the Code to disqualify any managers or any teachers from being entrusted with the training of pupil teachers?
§ THE VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL ON EDUCATION (Sir J. GORST, Cambridge University)
Pupil teachers entering for the Queen's scholarship examinations are not distinguished in the departmental records from other candidates, and the numbers cannot at once be given. One set of managers have within the last three years been disqualified under Article 34, and inquiries have been made, and warnings given, in many other cases. There has within the same period been one case of suspension of the right to superintend pupil teachers under the note to Article 64.
