Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 9, No. 10. August, 7, 1946

Politics and Education

Politics and Education

Front page news this issue is a dual interview with Secretary of the Labour Party, Mr. Moohan, and educational authority of the National Party, Mr. Oram. From both these gentlemen "Salient" has obtained preliminary outlines of the educational programme of their respective parties, and this is published with the hope that students will use it as a guide when reading the greater mass of election propaganda that will soon flood the country.

A strong attempt has been made to avoid bias of any form in presenting these reports and they are published here with the minimum of alteration. It might, however, be recalled that the Labour Party have had their outlined policy ready for some time, while Mr. Holland had to be consulted before the National Party policy could be compiled. It is at least to be hoped that the time will come when education will be an integral part of a party's programme, and not merely a plank in the Election Platform.
