§ Mrs. Rumbold
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, pursuant to his statement of 21 March, if he will take steps to set up courses for governors of schools and members of education committees to train them in assessing desirable qualities in the selection of head teachers.
§ Sir Keith Joseph
I expect very soon to receive the report of the research into the selection of head teachers for secondary schools sponsored by the Department. Once this report is to hand, I shall review the scope for improving the selection of head teachers, through the training of selectors or by other means.
