[Professor Ray Lankester and the suggestion of exchanging British and colonial professors]
Professor Ray Lankester (says the Daily Graphic) has published a letter addressed to him by Professor Stuart, of the Sydney University, suggesting that British and colonial professors might occasionally derive much benefit from temporary exchange of duties.
The proposal has Professor Ray Lankester’s cordial approval and is certainly worthy of being seriously considered. Teachers from the mother country would be mentally refreshed and stimulated by coming into contact with the new and stirring life of the colonies. On the other hand, colonial teachers would make British Universities acquainted with many valuable results of fresh experience.
