I WAS using a 1961 book on education in Ayrshire published by the Scottish Council for Research in Education and idly turned to the then current SCRE booklist. Among the 47 titles are Godfrey Thomson's analysis of children's test scores, Douglas McIntosh's "Promotion from Primary to Secondary Education" and Margare Clark's study of left-handedness.
If any more justification were needed of the value to Scottish education of SCRE, the comprehensiveness of such a catalogue would do it. Few teachers have not benefited from these monographs.
