"Let all schools be closed at once. The great mass of humanity should never learn to read and write" --D.H. Lawrence
In the United Kingdom, before 1870, education was largely a private affair, with wealthy parents sending their children to fee-paying schools, and others using whatever local teaching was made available. The Forster Elementary Education Act 1870 required partially state funded board schools to be set up to provide primary (elementary) education.
DefinitionEducation encompasses teaching and learning specific skills, and also something less tangible but more profound: the imparting of knowledge, good judgement and wisdom. One of the fundamental goals of education is to impart culture across the generations. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Education [Sept 2004]
