Hi folks
I'm a university student studying English Language and Literature in Shanghai International Studies University.
I am required to write an essay on the changes in the British Education System since 1945 , and the sigificance of which.
Since I found little information online, I would like to need your help. Thank you so much.
I'm looking forward to it.

Try searching in Google about comprehensive schools and the move away from grammar schools in the 1970's, hopefully you'll come up with something

You might want to see what you can find on the 1944 Butler Education Act. I know its slightly before your period of study but it really revolutionised British education. It made school education both free and compulsory for all up to the age of 15 and introduced a tripartite system in which state schools were divided into academic grammar schools, secondary modern schools and technical schools (although the technical schools never really took off). This pretty much set the scene for the next twenty years or so until the comprehensive system began to be introduced in the 1960s. Whereas The grammar schools had previously selected the brightest pupils at the age of 11 and the remainder had attended secondary modern schools, comprehensive education was intended to be broad, inclusive and provide equal opportunity for all. The comprehensive system is still dominant across England and Wales with only a few education districts still maintaining the state grammar school system.
