Education in Athens was not compulsory from
a legal point of view, but public opinion insisted that
all male citizens should be educated. The only edu-
cational provision in our Athenian law was that any
son to whom an education had been denied did not

Douglas Gormley, a metallurgist, and Mr. George
Grant, a farmer. This group is representative of the
people in the surrounding area.

among the board members, people of the school
