The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1912
In No. 2213, vol, 89, of "Nature," a writer reviews the work published last year by the Reform Association. After a more or less kindly criticism, the writer makes the strange statement that it is hopeless for a small colony like New Zealand to try eradicate an evil still adhered to in England. He is referring to the examination system. Of course New Zealand is notorious for its unprogressive legislation, its aversion to reforms not elsewhere carried out.
