TIIF, NEW EDUCATION BILL. 4 THE PARENTAL SOLUTION. The Biahop of St. Asaph, writing to Saiur- 8 "Times," says:—I rejoice to find that the ^re»t is now being loudly called in to solve Q 8 education question. This is a step forward. Wofr<^ of retrospect may bo instructive. In » a Bill was introduced into the House of rue the object of which was to secure that faith taught to tlie child in all elementary TT°°1S should b? decided by the parent of the lld. One Bishop regarded the discussion as fishing," another as an "exploring expedi- QQri> while Lord Selborne, speaking for the ^ornment, gave the Bill a tepid welcome. Rill, however, passed the second reading :ltho-ut a division, and the significant, fact is at this was duo to tlie support which the Bill from Lord Tweedinouth. speaking in Y^^baence cf Loid Spencer for the Opposition. Tweedmoulii thought that tiie BiJl "would ;:¿eot.ly well form a basis for some arrange- tfuture," and he "welcomed the aa a message of peace, and he hoped that ln'ght be possible to expand it into y^^cordat." This encourages me in the hope 3^1 the parental solution may now be fra.nkly hy bolh political parties. Another which can be urged with equal justice °Q-Ual! recognition of who oh is oseeiitial for a pcnmanejit solution, is a f<yf? freedom of the teacher. Here again will be useful.
