9781331254355: University Extension, Past, Present, and Future (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from University Extension, Past, Present, and Future

The first and second editions of this little book were published in August, 1890, under the title of "University Extension: Has it a Future?" They dealt, primarily, with the position created by the statement of the Chancellor of the Exchequer made in the House of Commons on the 21st of July, 1890, that part of the money accruing from the new spirit duty would ultimately be applied to the promotion of intermediate, technical, and agricultural education. Their object was to show that, from its past history and its present condition, the educational system, commonly known as University Extension, was worthy of serious attention whenever the Legislature should come to enumerate the institutions to which County Councils might vote grants in aid. The year which has elapsed since the autumn of 1890 has witnessed greater changes in English education than any which have happened since the memorable year 1870. Whilst the Imperial Parliament has been busy with Free Education, almost every County Council in England and Wales has been taking steps to initiate its own scheme of commercial and technical instruction.
