London’s Jewish Communities and State Education (FORUM 3)
Author: JANE MARTIN
The Inner London education authority was a notable example of a radical and powerful local government body from which the fight for the comprehensive principle in English secondary education emerged. Building on previous work of women’s contribution to state education in London, this articles focuses on Anglo-Jewish educator activists who helped shape the capital’s response to the policy question of how to provide secondary education for all. The author’s subjects are Henrietta (Nettie) Adler (1868-1950), siblings Helen Bentwich [née Franklin] (1892-1972) and Hugh Franklin (1889-1962) and Harold Rosen (1919-2008).
