Education Week 1939
This photo is from my Education Week booklet of 1939 and shows Whitehawk School from the air, probably soon after its construction in 1933.
Sexist Comment of 1939 or Reality?
Its interesting to note that the booklet states that the Children and Young Persons Act of 1933 has extended the responsibility of Education Committee in regard to anyone under the age of 17 who is brought before the Juvenile Court. Under the Act the Remand Home to which boys are sent has been placed under control of the Education Committee. Boys are to receive educational instruction and handicraft while games and books are to be provided for their leisure……..no mention is made of what happens to the girls!
