Reorganization programmes of schools necessary to secure the provision of advanced instruction in elementary schools submitted to the Board of Education by Local Education Authorities.
The files include related correspondence, interview memoranda, re-assessments of school accommodation, protests against re-organization proposals and replies to questionnaires on provision of advanced education.
Some files contain earlier material on the organization of advanced work in elementary schools; and in the London files there are papers concerning the formation (1909 to 1910) of central schools followed by reports of H.M. Inspectors on the first years's working of such schools (1912/1913).
For the period 1936-1944 only papers relating to areas which had not previously submitted schemes of submitted major re-organisation schemes under the Education Act, 1936, have been preserved.
