"By their very existence, higher grade schools emphasised the notion that extending one's education was a normal thing for children to do. The abolition of the higher grade schools, as well as stunting the school life of the majority of children, conveyed a very clear message about the role they were expected to play in society. The 1902 Education Act, widely applauded by most historians to date, emerges from this analysis as a profoundly retrogressive move, by which much was lost and from which many of the twentieth-century's enduring educational problems stemmed."--BOOK JACKET.
