For all these reasons, the British Columbia Department of Education never seized the opportunity to address the problems of inequality in rural schools more fully by using radio broadcasting or even to use it to support the otherwise noble efforts of the correspondence officers.

Well, both Rawsthorne and Bush were well-known tea-party Socialists and prior to the Cold War both had leant their names and prestige to some Leftist causes in the U.K. Very mild stuff, actually, and nothing that would distinguish them from tens of thousands of other, younger, Brits who had proper academic affiliations.
