First published in 1952, this pamphlet suggests It is a common thing to find a lower average and a greater range of marks in a mathematics than a literary examination ( e.g. arithmetic as against English). Does this tell you anything about the difficulty of the subject, or is it due to the marking system?
It has been urged that the true appraisal of the quality of schooling is found in the quality of community life years later. Can this statement be reasonably supported? Do any other factors weigh as much as schooling in creating this community life? Are there any aspects of such life for which schooling gives no direct, and little indirect training, e.g. marriage, social relationships, value judgments?
