AN INSPECTOR'S SCHEME.
' AUCKLAND, March 4
At this moi-ning's meeting, of the Board of.Education, Mi; E: C. Purdie, Chief Inspector, submitted proposals which h© has framed ' with regard to reforms that are admittedly desirable in the organisation of the inspectorate. Mr Purdie convinced .the' Board that efficiency: would be increased by reorganisation of the'staff of inspectors, and;-it was .clear that hesitation to make any:» change _ would be caused largely; .by financial considerations. Ultimately a committee of the whole Board, w"ith the Chief Inspector, was set up to-consider-the. proposal. Briefly, the. effect of Mr Purdie/s motions regarding the inspectorate was the division; of the ;education district into three .areas—northern, metropolitan, and southern—each.in charge of a senior inspector, with other inspectors' controlling .sub-areas, of. >a specified: number'-of •'schools under the senior, inspector.. • The Chief Inspector would direct and supervise'the work of education throughout the whole education district, and it suggested that sufficient extra inspectors should be. appointed forthwith to enable the scheme to be carried out on the lines indicated.
