Sir Cyril Jackson
Birth: Feb. 6, 1863, England
Death: Sep. 3, 1924

Educator, Author. He was a pioneer of modern education in Western Australia. He attended Charterhouse School before studying at New College, Oxford. On graduating he worked for ten years as a social worker at Toynbee Hall and was also central secretary of the Children's Country Holiday Fund. In 1896 he was appointed inspector-general of schools in Western Australia. He immediately saw the poor condition of the education system in the state and set about a radical programme of improvement. He bought about the abolition of school fees, ordered the building of a college for training teachers and oversaw improvements in the staffing, equipping and design of schools. He returned to England in 1903 where he served in many positions, including as chairman of the London County Council, chairman of the education committee, agent-general for Western Australia, chairman of the London intelligence committee on unemployment and distress and chairman of the Imperial College of Science. During World War I he served as vice-chairman of the war pensions committee. He was also the author of two books, "Unemployment and Trade Unions", 1910 and "Outlines of Education in England", 1913 and was the co-author with A. Riley and M. E. Sadler of "The Religious Question in Public Education". He continued to advise on education in Australia until his death. (bio by: js)
