9:237-52, January 1920.
A description of the recent experience of Great Britain in education. The school as a whole now receives consideration, that is, its atmosphere, and not the mere mechanical product of the response of the pupils to a process of forcing for an external test. The attention which was given to individuality in the earlier schools is now lacking, for “no general provision on a necessarily colossal scale can take adequate account of the importance of developing individuality. It can only prepare for a later stage in which the requisite process may be begun in the secondary school and completed in the university." Since these are closed to the great majority of boys and girls, the demand for adult education has arisen, and organizations such as the Workers' educational asso
ciation are making great progress. 2131. Leclère, Léon. Les universités belges de 1914 à 1919. Revue interna
