THE EDUCATION ACT. The following is the resolution which Mr. Dixon in- tends to move in the House of Commons on the 5th of March, at the request of the National Education League: — That, in the opinion of the House, the provisions of the Elementary Education Act are defective, and its working unsatisfactory, inasmuch as— It fails to secure the general election of School Boards in towns and rural districts. 2. It does not render obligatory the attendance of children at school. ''3.—It deals in a partial and irregular manner with the remission and payment of school fees by School Boards. 4.-It allows School Boards to pay fees, out of rates levied upon the community, to denominational schools, over which the ratepayers have no control. 5. -It permits School Boards to use the money of the ratepayers for the purpose of imparting dogmatic re- ligious instruction in schools established by local boards. "6.—By the concession of these permissive powers, it provokes religious discord throughout the country, and by the exercise of them it violates the rigkts of conscience." Mr. Forster has given notice that upon Mr. Dixon's motion he will move the following amendment That in the opinion of this House, the time that has elapsed since the passing of the Act of 1870, and the progress that has been made in the arrangements under it, are not such as to enable the House to enter with ad- vantage on a review of its operation."
