Queen - Days Of Our Lives
To give a rounded picture of how children experienced school life in Britain during the 15 years following the Second World War, Simon Webb draws extensively on the testimony of people who were at ordinary primary, secondary modern or grammar schools. Beginning with the 1944 Butler Act that replaced the old elementary schools and guaranteed free secondary education, the book covers topics including discipline, the introduction of the dreaded 11-plus, school buildings, the independent sector, and childrens books.
