Educator Most Extraordinary : The Life and Achievements of Harry Rée, 1914-1991 (Paperback)
About this item
This is the extraordinary story of Harry Rée, the "pre-eminent educationalist of the post-War years." The youngest of eight children, he went to Cambridge and then into teaching. After 10 years as headmaster of Watford Boys’ Grammar School, he became a fervent advocate for comprehensives. The first professor appointed at the University of York, he argued for innumerable causes: community education, comprehensives, curricular reform, voluntary suicide, and much else. His life and thought explored questions such as: What can you do if you truly believe in the power of education? What does it mean to live a life committed to public service? Is one person’s compromise another’s sell-out? And what does it mean to be a visionary?
