Bell, a Scottish educator and ordained Church of England priest, describes and promotes his system of education in which smarter children are taught in the usual fashion, then given the responsibility of teaching throse who are a wee bit slower on the uptake (sort of like an educational pyramid scheme, or Amway for teachers).

Light smudging to covers, library stamps/numbers on several pages at front, partial split between end paper/title page (beginning at top and stretching about half-way down), a bit of marginalia/underlining by previous owner, some general wear. Mainly internally tight. A very scarce item, seldom seen in any condition at all. (C/BG)
