PRACTICAL NEED. INTERMEDIATE SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
PRACTICAL NEED. INTERMEDIATE SCHOOLS. A denial that the policy of the Edu- cation Department of opening inter- mediate schools represented another means of reducing or nullifying the scholarships was made by the Director of Education (Mr. B. J. M'Kenna) yes- terday when replying to comments on the subject in a Roman Catholic weekly journal. Mr. M'Kenna declared £hat the policy of opening intermediate schools meant initiating a broad educational policy. No boy would pass from prim- ary to secondary education unless he was worthy of it, but the question was what constituted worthiness. Did the authorities who were complaining pro- pose to exclude boys who were prac- tically minded and not academically minded from passing beyond the prim- ary stage?

The council's query, to which Mr. Walsh's ruling was a reply, related to ordinary employees of the council gov- erned by the local authorities award and paid by the council from its own funds. Under the preference clause in that award, Mr. Hynes said, it was compulsory for all employees not al- ready financial members of the Aus- tralian Workers' Union to become financial members within one month of a...
