Sample text

By the end of the nineteenth century several local authorities had appointed ‘lady health missionaries’ and ‘travelling teachers of hygiene’. School medical services, which had begun in the 1890s (for example, in Bradford where Margaret McMillan did much to launch the system), were given legislative underpinning. Midwifery, which had been largely outside the control of doctors, became more strictly regulated. The loss of life during the First World War heightened anxieties about breeding a new generation of soldiers.

Sometimes local authorities appear to have had considerations other than costs in mind. In 1933 Lilycroft Nursery School in Bradford was merged with the local infant school and Miriam Lord, the head of the nursery school, was demoted to the rank of an assistant. She had clashed with the local authority by publicly contesting its decisions on milk in school, had run parenting classes for fathers (as well as those for mothers) and had taught young girls what she called ‘the elements of sexual hygiene’ and all these things probably contributed to the decision to bring her under the control of the head of the local elementary school.

This remained true in Britain for a long time for those who could afford private education. ‘Preparatory’ schools usually took children at 7. Even in the 1930s it was still assumed by many middleclass people that formal education would not begin before the seventh birthday (Wynne, 1936). The decision to make the fifth rather than the seventh birthday the boundary point was not taken on grounds related to any theory of education. It seems to have been based on the view that the sooner the children of the working class had concluded elementary education and were ready for employment the better (Blackstone, 1971: 23).
