The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 69

Appendix B

Appendix B.

Dear Sir,—

As you take considerable interest in the political affairs of the colony, you are no doubt aware that the education question is likely to occupy a prominent place among the many important subjects coming up for consideration in the next Parliament. In view of this fact and believing that you have given some considerable attention to the subject, the Educational Institute of Otago would gladly receive from you an expression of your opinion on the following points:—
1.Would you suggest any alteration in the Standard course of instruction prescribed under the present system?
2.What are your views regarding the proposed introduction of technical or manual training into public schools?
3.What is your opinion with regard to raising the school age from 5 years to 6 or 7 years?
4.It has been suggested that the course of instruction should be limited to the Fourth Standard: what is your opinion on this point?
5.If a Private Schools Bill similar to, or the same as, that introduced into the last Parliament by Mr Pyke, were brought forward, would you oppose or support such a measure?
I am, yours, &c.,

J. R. Don,

Hon. Secretary Educational Institute of Otago
