The recent British White Paper on post-war education in England leaves little doubt that the Great Britain looks to a new era of education. The work has already begun. British soldier of today will be the key citizen of tomorrow. British War Office has established a far-reaching program of education for citizenship among England's troops. It is being carried out by the Army Educational Corps. The purpose of these reforms suggested is, among other things, "to provide a means for all of developing the various talents with which they are endowed, and so enriching the inheritance of the country whose citizens they are." These proposals have met with a very wide measure of acceptance. Any criticisms of them that have been made are interesting, not so much for themselves, as for the divergent philosophies of education that underline them. Army education, then, while it has much to contribute towards making him a better soldier, will bear in mind that he is always, and at the same time, an individual citizen and breadwinner. It is cultural, civic, and vocational as well as military.
