Front. Our Educational Correspondent The angle of approach made to the problem of training is the needs of the schools, and it is recommended that whilst every teacher should have the training neeessary for the general practitioner, there should also be hopes to undertake. differentiated courses suitable for the type of work the young teacher Consideration is given to the two courses of training at present open to teachers—through the Universities and through the Training Colleges—and recommendations are made which are designed to link the two types of course more closely together and bring them nearer to parity of qualification and status.

THE RECOMMENDATION To this end it is suggested that eventually every Training College should become an integral part of the University in whose area it is situated, with its course lengthened to three years aed the final qualification awarded by the University.

It is recommended that General Honours courses should be instituted at all Universities.

"SPECIAL SUBJECTS" As regards " special subjects teachers " the general recommendation is that the course should be the general one with the special subject as an extra, and that these teachers should be able and willing to teach allied subjects.

Recommendations are made on the financial arrangements made by the Board of Education and local Education Authorities for students in training.
