NEXT WEEK So many letters came in following Charles Brand's

'The Teacher's Lot' in our March 31 issue that we suggested he should postpone his reply until he had time to digest them. He will be answering his critics in the Spectator next week. Two other perennial controversies in the profession will also be discussed: the concept of a 'liberal' education, by the headmaster of a county grammar school; and specialisation, by A. D. C. Peterson, the Director of the Department of Education. Oxford Uni- versity.

In Books next week there will be a Paperbacks section with reviews by D. W. Brogan, William Golding, Anthony Hart- ley. Brian Inglis and Anthony Quinton.
