“Dr Geen’s study begins with an account of educational policy before and immediately after the war. Interestingly, Cardiff had made no progress nor even shown any commitment to implementing the recommendations of the Hadow Report of 1926. In its development plan it showed no inclination to accelerate the pace of change; councillors on all sides were quiescent, leaving the initiation and development of policy to a Director of Education whose interest seemed to lie solely with the existing grammar schools. By contrast, Dr Geen finds the 1960s to be a period of increasing intervention by local, elected representatives, and of pressure for reform from successive Secretaries of State...Dr Geen is to be congratulated on telling such a fascinating tale.” –History of Education
