Dr Pam Jarvis considers a century of activism against developmentally inappropriate social policy. The lecture will begin by considering the outrage of Margaret McMillan at the poor health and nutrition of primary school pupils in Bradford and Deptford, and the censuring of her associate, Miriam Lord, by the Bradford School Board following her insistence that she would not reduce the amount of milk supplied to the disadvantaged children in her Bradford-based nursery.
It will move on to consider the efforts of psychoanalysts Melanie Klein and Susan Isaacs to champion the social and emotional development of children, and then into contemporary challenge to the ‘Too Much, Too Soon’ education policy in England; in particular its lack of concern for children’s mental health, in particular with respect to social and emotional development.
