Although not an autobiographical novel, as was Tom Brown’s School Days, Ian Maclaren’s novel Beside the Bonnie Briar Bush exemplifies and reinforces an educational tradition and hence its ideology. The teacher who ‘could detect a scholar in the egg, and prophesised Latinity from a boy who was only fit to be a cowherd’ (Maclaren 1940: 8) is the leader of the local community. His function is to spot likely talent for intellectual endeavour and then persuade the family to live frugally to save up, and the betteroff members of the community to give their help to put together the money for the university fees.

Matheson teachers ‘still used books of English exercises and of mechanical computation’ (DES 1967 quoted in Brooks 1991: 92). However, the Black Papers regarded Plowdenism as a libertarian charter and Callaghan’s Ruskin Speech denounced progressivism. The prime minister seemed to have accepted much of the Black Papers propaganda about declining standards, but the ideology promulgated in Plowdenism was far from being what was actually happening in English schools (Brooks 1991). Although often half-heartedly implemented, Plowdenism can nevertheless be seen as the British, or more specifically English, culmination of the romantic or individualist/psychological tradition (Matheson and Limond 1999).
