OF THE

COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL ON EDUCATION.

1840-1.

1.-INSTRUCTIONS TO INSPECTORS OF SCHOOLS.

Committee of Council on Education, SIR,

Council Office, Whitehall, August 1840. 1. Her Majesty having been graciously pleased, on the recommendation of the Committee of Council, to appoint you one of the Inspectors of Schools, the Committee request your attention to the enclosed paper of instructions, with the documents thereto annexed, for your guidance in the discharge of the duties which will

4. The inspection of schools aided by public grants is, in this respect, a means of co-operation between the Government and the committees and superintendents of schools, by which information respecting all remarkable improvements may be diffused whenever it is sought; you will therefore be careful, at visits of inspection, to communicate with the *[parochial clergyman, or other minister of religion,] connected with the school, and with the
