There exists no historical conspectus of French intermediate education; and without that, it is impossible to appreciate its true relation to the present state system. In supplying that want, this study incidentally makes a contribution to the wider question of the limitations inherent in state action. Moreover, previous treaties, whether by official observers or private publicists, have been static in character, sumarising current legislation and statistics, but failing to show intermediate as a living growth, or to bring out its social implications. Our endeavour to make good those defects has led us to seek the roots of the official structure in society and the schools themselves; and in so doing, we have established an Anglo-French link which has completely escaped previous notice.
