Copeland (education, U. of Reading, England) traces the continuing divergence of normal education and that provided for students considered backward to the co-existence of two Royal Commissions on different aspects of elementary education during the period 1886-89. He shows how the argument prevailed that the slowness was due to personal mentally deficient rather than to poverty, poor housing, and ill health, and how that victory still underlies modern education theory and practice.
