From the cover: “This book traces the emergence of modern education from the first enthusiastic efforts of the scientific societies in the l780s up to the securing of universal education with the Act of 1870. The ideas for model schools of such prominent reformers as James Mill and Jeremy Bentham are expounded in detail, together with the early attempts at working people’s self-education, the struggle for leadership of the Mechanics’ Institutes, and Robert Owens’s movement for communal education: the Chartists are seen striving for working-class education, and the power of the trade unions finally enters to carry through the 1870 Act. This volume will be of great value to all interested in education.”
