Education in england the history of our schools,for your improvement 5th edition amazon opiniones,best fiction books to read this summer zippy - Reviews

The History in Education Project, based in the Institute of Historical Research, was funded by the Linbury Trust and led by Professor Sir David Cannadine. The ProjectA was designed toA provide insight not only into the major curricular changes in history over the previous century, but the changing experience of history at the chalkface in English state schools.
The Project generated a wide range of new resources and benefited from a large network of interested people who supported and contributed to its outcomes.
Jenny and Nicola produced background papers on various topics to set the changes in history teaching in context. The final outcome of the Project is a book, The Right Kind of History (Palgrave Macmillan, 2011) co-authored by Professor David Cannadine, Jenny Keating and Nicola Sheldon.
This website has been created to enable all those interested in history in schools to access the materials generated by the Project. The History of Education Society Blog brings you the latest news on research, events and literature in the history of education. History of Education has established itself as a leading, international, peer-reviewed journal, focusing on the history of education in all parts of the world. The journal publishes original research and major reviews of books in the history of education. The History of Education Researcher (previously the History of Education Society Bulletin), edited by Jonathan Doney (University of Exeter) and Rob Freathy (University of Exeter), is a peer refereed journal which publishes shorter articles on the history of education (max. The British Library Public Catalogue Note that Z39.50 access to this catalogue is avalable as it is included in COPAC. Readers of German will appreciate the impressive resources at Historische Bildungsforschung Online. The Society seeks to further the study of the history of education by providing opportunities for discussion among those engaged in its study and teaching.
These pages provide you with information regarding forthcoming and previous conferences in the history of education and other related fields of study. You are warmly invited to join us for tea and coffee to introduce the SIG, informal talks and discussion, and a reception. We particularly aim to include in the assembly programme original research, new findings and fresh analytical and comparative studies along with critical surveys conducted by historians, teachers and other researchers of historical development of education, and pedagogical questions of each respective period. This international conference brings together historical and philosophical research on Dewey, his writings and their influence over the course of a century. The programme provides scope to review and analyse historic and current projects from around the world for countering social and intellectual segregation, for interactive pedagogies, for democratic practice in classrooms and schools, and for constructive partnership between schools and their local communities. In the spirit of Dewey this conference focuses on actions as well as words and will present current democratic education projects. What are the practices of schooling that Dewey has inspired over the past century, and how can his ideas continue to be applied now?
Bursaries also available for members of the History of Education Society presenting papers on historical aspects. We are looking for papers which will provide insights into the development of voluntary action history in the past twenty-five years and address the challenges it faces in the future. We will award a prize for the best paper presented by a new researcher - a graduate student, a postdoctoral researcher (within 3 years of degree) or an unpublished independent researcher. We will be happy to consider proposals for panels of up to four papers on a similar subject, although if this is your intention, please submit an abstract for each of the proposed papers. For shorter extracts you do not need my permission, provided the source is acknowledged as shown above. In references in the text, the number after the colon is always the page number (even where a document has numbered paragraphs or sections). There were almost certainly schools in Britain during the Roman occupation, because towards the end of the first century Juvenal relates that eloquent Gauls were teaching Britons to plead causes and Thule was discussing the establishment of a Rhetoric School. Thus the earliest schools in England - at least, those we know anything about - date from the arrival of St Augustine and Christianity around the end of the sixth century.
It may be safely asserted then, that in this year, 598, as an adjunct to Christ Church Cathedral, or rather as part of it, and under the tuition of himself and the clerks who came with him and whom Ethelbert endowed, Augustine established the Grammar School which still flourishes under the name of the King's School, not from its original founder, Ethelbert, but from its re-founder, Henry VIII. Leach (1915:6-7) notes that grammar schools and song schools 'have often been confounded as if they were one school' but he argues that they were 'distinct foundations, completely differentiated in function as they were in their teaching, and generally in their government', though 'In small places they were sometimes united under one master'.
Song schools 'were in essence special or professional schools for those engaged in the actual performance of the services', whereas grammar schools 'gave a general education, as much needed by the statesman, the lawyer, the civil servant, and the clerk as by the priest or cleric' (Leach 1915:7). Augustine's concept of education derived from the Roman and Hellenistic schools of rhetoric.
However, the only subject taught systematically in the grammar schools was Latin grammar and literature, because the aim of the schools was strictly vocational: to prepare pupils for entry to the Church. Thus 'grammar' at this time did not mean learning about the structure of language - that meaning did not develop until the middle ages. A circumstance came to our notice, which cannot be mentioned without shame, namely that you, our brother, give lessons in grammar. Some idea of the curriculum of these early schools can be found in Bede's Ecclesiastical History.
Many schools were founded in the century after Augustine's arrival, including those at Dorchester in Oxfordshire (around 634), Winchester (648), Hexham (probably 678), Malmesbury in Wiltshire (possibly founded by Aldhelm, who died Bishop of Sherborne in 709), Lichfield, Hereford and Worcester. In the eighth century the focus of development in English schools moved from Theodore and Aldhelm in the south to Bede and Alcuin in the north. To the influence of this robust, studious and convivial Englishman we may fairly trace the legislation which defines the educational responsibilities of the church and the episcopal and monastic schools which resulted from it. Alcuin's school taught 'grammar, rhetoric, law, poetry, astronomy, natural history, arithmetic, geometry, music, and the Scriptures' (Williams 1961:129). Scripture was the central subject, and rhetoric teaching was mainly a study of verbal forms in the Bible.
Alcuin left York in 782 when Charlemagne persuaded him to work for the Frankish court - to 'prescribe for the intellectual wants of a great empire fallen from civilisation to barbarism' (Fisher 1936:161).
The development of schools in England was interrupted by the long series of Viking invasions which began around 866. The one part of England which successfully resisted Viking control was Wessex, where Alfred became king in 871 at the age of twenty-three.
A gloomy interval in the history of English education ensued after the death of Offa and the widespread devastation caused by the Viking invasions.
There are many stories about Alfred (the burning of the cakes being the most famous) and it is difficult to separate fact from myth. Alfred took 'delight in the songs and literature of his people' and showed 'concern for education' (Fisher 1936:183). Alfred drove the Norsemen out of Winchester, Southampton, London, Oxford, and Chichester, but the invasions continued for another century or so. It was a misfortune for the school at Canterbury and elsewhere that this late converted monk became archbishop. The main difference caused by the Conquest was the gradual substitution of Norman for English schoolmasters and the translation by the schoolboys of Latin no longer into English but into Norman-French, which, till the reign of Edward III, was the vernacular of the upper classes in the country, of the middle classes in the towns, and of the whole cultured and clerkly class. Education was still largely about vocational training and most pupils were still intending monks or priests, though 'there was probably an occasional extension, and there are certainly some recorded cases of the education of young members of royal and noble families' (Williams 1961:129-130). By about 1100 all the cathedrals and collegiate churches had schools: the schoolmaster was one of their most important officers and teaching was one of their most important functions.
Some schools - like those at Bedford, Christchurch and Waltham - were removed from monastic control and handed over to secular canons. We hear but little concerning schoolboy life in medieval times, but that little is generally unfavourable. The concept of the Seven Liberal Arts (the trivium of grammar, rhetoric, and dialectic, the quadrivium of music, arithmetic, geometry, and astronomy) goes back to at least the fifth century, but it was only now that it began to be realised with any adequacy, as new material from classical learning, and new attitudes towards it, flowed in. And change was not limited to the schools: by the beginning of the 13th century universities were beginning to develop. By 1201, the university was led by a 'magister scolarum Oxonie' and in 1214 he was given the title of Chancellor. Rioting between 'town and gown' (the townspeople and the students) resulted in the establishment of primitive halls of residence which became the first Oxford colleges - University College was established in 1249, Balliol in 1260 and Merton in 1264. Less than a century later, Oxford had achieved eminence above every other seat of learning, and won the praises of popes, kings and sages by virtue of its antiquity, curriculum, doctrine and privileges.
Some Oxford scholars, however, became tired of the hostility of the townspeople and in 1209 they moved to Cambridge. They studied what we might now describe as an 'arts foundation course' in grammar, logic and rhetoric.
In order to avoid abuse of the royal privileges which were conferred on scholars, steps were taken to identify and authenticate those who had gained degrees. From this time to the dissolution of colleges in 1548 scarcely a year passed without witnessing the foundation of a college at the university, or a collegiate church with its grammar school attached, generally in the native place of its founder.
The Black Death of 1349 and the two further plagues which followed in 1361 and 1367 profoundly affected the universities and schools. As we have seen, the control of the church over education was beginning to diminish during this period. Benefactions to monasteries dwindled in the late 14th century, so wealthy benefactors or guilds began to establish 'chantries', each with its own priest, to celebrate masses for the repose of the benefactors' souls, and, in many cases, to conduct a school.
More independent schools began to open, for 'ruling class boys' who paid fees, and to 'poor and needy scholars, of good character and well-conditioned, of gentlemanly habits, able for school, completely learned in reading, plain-song and old Donatus [Latin Grammar]' (unknown source quoted in Williams 1961:132). Because they were independent, admission to these new schools was not restricted to one locality but was on a national basis.
Winchester College was founded by William of Wykeham, Bishop of Winchester and Chancellor to Richard II.
Winchester's special significance was that, though connected with New College, it was a separate and distinct foundation for boys, 'a sovereign and independent corporation existing by and for itself, self-centred and self-governed' (Leach 1915:208). Henry VI founded Eton College (pictured) in 1440, followed a year later by King's College Cambridge, which was to be supplied with scholars from Eton.
The growing interest of the laity in education at this time can be seen in the licences granted to two Trinity gilds in Oxfordshire to maintain schoolmasters, one at Deddington in 1446, and the other at Chipping Norton in 1451.
And the great schoolmaster William Wayneflete founded Magdalen College, 'and attached to it not one but two schools, one at his native place, Wainfleet, in Lincolnshire, in 1459, the other Magdalen College School, by the gates of the college at Oxford' (Leach 1915:270).
The Renaissance (literally 'rebirth') was a cultural movement which began in Italy in the 14th century and spread across the continent during the following three hundred years. The Reformation, which established Protestantism as a branch of Christianity, was prompted by discontent at the perceived worldliness of the Papacy and the financial demands it made.
In England, the Reformation was a much more localised affair, which centred on King Henry VIII's disputes with Rome over the status of his various marriages.
In fact, at first Henry (pictured - from the portrait by Hans Holbein) opposed the reforming movement and dedicated his book Assertio Septum Sacramentorum (Defence of the Seven Sacraments) to Pope Leo X, who rewarded him in 1521 with the title Fidei Defensor (Defender of the Faith). But by 1527 Henry wanted his marriage to Catherine of Aragon ended so that he could marry Anne Boleyn. Henry VIII was, perhaps, the most highly educated person for his time who ever sat on the throne of England. The abolition of the greater monasteries in 1540 resulted in the refoundation of twelve grammar schools as part of the 'new foundation' cathedrals. In the Statutes of the refounded school at Canterbury, the last chapter concerned 'The Method of Teaching'.
These refounded schools would provide 'the greater part of the education of England till the eighteenth century' (Leach 1915:316). Another significant outcome of the Reformation was the translation of the Latin Bible into the vernacular. Parliament was clearly unhappy with this decision, because in 1543 (three years after Cromwell had fallen from grace and been executed) it passed an Act which banned artisans, husbandmen, labourers, servants and almost all women from reading or discussing the Bible.
However, while the Reformation resulted in changes to the structure of the English school system, the Renaissance appears to have had little effect on the curriculum.



Greek and sometimes Hebrew were added to the main Latin curriculum (to assist correct understanding of the scriptures), and there was more study of literature. The major achievements of the Renaissance, in the vernacular literatures, in geographical discovery, in new painting and music, in the new spirit in philosophy and physical inquiry, in changing attitudes to the individual, had little effect on the standard forms of general education. The main educational theories of the Renaissance - especially the ideal of the scholar-courtier - had little effect on English schools. As early as the 16th century - and more so in the 17th - there was much criticism of the limited curriculum of the grammar schools, based as it was on the requirements of the universities and the learned professions.
The existence of these two systems, alongside the academic system, reminds us of the determining effect on education of the actual social structure.
Elsewhere in Europe - in France and in the German and Scandinavian states - knightly or courtly academies were being founded to give instruction to young nobles, not only in horsemanship and the use of arms, but also in modern languages, history and geography, and in the application of mathematics to military and civil engineering.
A proposal for the establishment of a school on these lines in England was made by Sir Humphrey Gilbert in 1572, and in the following century Cowley, Locke, Defoe and other writers urged the setting up of such schools. Although the traditional grammar school changed little, there were significant developments in the education of younger children. One of the most notable educationists of the period was Roger Ascham (1515-1568), the teacher of Queen Elizabeth. It is pitie, that commonlie, more care is had, yea and that emonges verie wise men, to finde out rather a cunnynge man for their horse, than a cunnyng man for their children.
In the 17th and 18th centuries there were important developments in educational theory and the school curriculum began to take on a form we would recognise today.
The modern concept of a common education emerged in Europe after the Reformation amid quarrels between learned groups of Protestants, and between the Protestants and the established monastic orders. Comenius (1592-1670) (pictured: painting by Rembrandt), a Czech teacher, scientist, educator and writer, was one of the earliest champions of universal education, a concept he developed in his 1632 book Didactica magna. He went on to develop the idea of human learning as a progression from youth to maturity and from elementary to advanced knowledge. Comenius stressed the educational importance of the first six years of a child's life and developed the idea of teaching children of five or six 'without any tediousnesse to reade and write, as it were in a continuall course of play and pastime' (Informatorium der Mutterschul, Leszno, 1633, quoted in Hadow 1933:24).
In 1640, the House of Commons invited Comenius to England to establish and participate in an agency for the promotion of learning. These 3 (Pell, Fundanius, Comenius) are very fit to bee imploied about the Reformation of Learning. Hartlib was fascinated with the idea of developing a 'pansophy' - an encyclopaedia embracing the whole of human knowledge - and promulgated some surprisingly modern ideas: 'A great fault in teaching [is] that children are not made to learne themselves but are always taught' (Hartlib 1639).
The ideas of Ascham and Comenius regarding the importance of a suitable education for young children - especially the use of play - were gaining ground. We see Children do delight in Drums, Pipes, Fiddles, Guns made of Elder sticks, and bellowes noses, piped Keys, etc., painting Flags and Ensigns with Elder-berries and Corn poppy, making ships with Paper, and setting even Nut-shells a swimming, handling the tooles of workmen as soon as they turne their backs, and trying to worke themselves. Meanwhile, the grammar schools, with their narrow curriculum consisting of little more than Greek and Latin, were unable (or unwilling) to meet the new demands for courses of training and education fitting boys for the life of the period. After the execution of Charles I in 1649, the period of the Commonwealth (1649-1660) saw many proposals made for modifying the traditional courses in schools and universities. The policy of ecclesiastical uniformity adopted after 1660 further reinforced the inertia of the grammar schools. The growing dissatisfaction with the traditional curriculum was well expressed in Locke's Some Thoughts concerning Education (1693) in which he stressed the importance of a broader intellectual training, moral development and physical hardening (Spens 1938:13). In the universities - notably at Oxford and Cambridge - there was a scandalous decline in teaching standards in the 17th century, though there was some 'serious development in mathematics and the sciences' (Williams 1961:134). The most significant change in this period, however, was that the universities began to lose their monopoly over professional training. As a result, new vocational academies began to open at a remarkable rate, preparing students for the law and medicine, commerce, engineering, the arts and the armed services.
The Academies were established in considerable numbers from 1670 onwards, and while at first they were intended for the education of ministers of religion, they began to take in many lay pupils.
By the end of the 17th century there was much argument between the 'ancients' and 'moderns' over the changes that were gradually taking place in the curriculum, and an increasing demand for 'useful studies' (Spens 1938:12). By the beginning of the 18th century, then, the curriculum was beginning to take on its modern form, with the addition of mathematics, geography, modern languages, and, crucially, the physical sciences. For most children, however, education in England continued to be a 'haphazard system of parish and private adventure schools' (Williams 1961:134), with preparatory schools serving the academies and older foundations.
But increasing urbanisation now began to create new problems which few seemed very keen to to do anything about. The first significant attempt to meet the needs of children in the growing towns and cities was that of the Charity School movement, which began to develop around the end of the 17th century. It was the Industrial Revolution, which gathered pace in the last quarter of the 18th century, which finally spurred the state into providing a national education system, because industry 'required much more than limited reading skills acquired through moral catechism' (Benn and Chitty 1996:1).

Two academic research fellows, Dr Jenny Keating and Dr Nicola Sheldon worked on the Project from Jan. Jenny and Nicola have recorded a podcast in which they discuss how they planned and carried out the Project. Jenny and Nicola initiated a detailed survey of people's experience of history in the classroom, which drew in responses from 205 former pupils and 136 former or current teachers. Jenny and Nicola interviewed 68 people, including former secretaries of state, school inspectors past and present, teacher trainers, former members of the History Working Group which devised the first National Curriculum and textbook writers, as well as ordinary teachers both current and retired and former pupils. During the course of the Project, they also presented the initial findings at several conferences - the papers and presentations can be found here.
Professor Cannadine discusses some of the issues raised in the book in an interview for the Historical Association. TheA state of school history in EnglandA continues to be a vibrant and fiercely-argued topic of debate, not only amongst academics and researchers, but also in the media and amongst the wider public.
The journal is recognised as a key resource for both educationists and social historians alike. Papers dealing with both formal and informal education systems, comparative education, policy-making, the politics and experience of education and pedagogy are welcomed.
The Archives Hub enables you to search across a wealth of archives held at nearly 200 UK institutions including the University of Cambridge and the University of Oxford. We welcome all who are interested in history and educational research, for example the history of education, biography, life history, the history curriculum and representations of history in schools and informal educational settings. Various paths from schooling to education: non-formal education, technical education, vocational training, industrial development, etc. We expect, in particular, a problematic examination of educational development and pedagogical questions in individual regions or in Slovene lands, a presentation of mutual influences and links within Slovene towns and views on transfer of knowledge to and from abroad. Historians and philosophers have a timely platform for sharing their perspectives on education for democracy and democratic practice in education. Please note that to be considered for the prize candidates must submit a copy of their full paper by 30 June 2016.

But when the Romans left Britain, so did civilisation - at least for the next couple of centuries. In his Ecclesiastical History the Venerable Bede, the eighth century Northumbrian monk, writes that in 604 Augustine ordained two bishops - Mellitus at St Paul's in London and Justus at Rochester in Kent. It comprised the seven liberal arts and sciences - grammar, rhetoric, logic, arithmetic, geometry, music and astronomy - which were regarded as a preparation for the study of theology, law and medicine.
Rather, it was 'a preparation for reading, especially reading aloud, and was taken to involve comprehension and commentary, so that content was inseparable' (Williams 1961:129).
This news caused us such annoyance and disgust that all our joy at the good we had heard earlier was turned to sorrow and distress, since the same lips cannot sing the praises of Jove and the praises of Christ. Grammar was the teaching of Latin, and versification was in the same context, though at times it extended to relate to poetry in the vernacular. When the curtain rises again, the scene has shifted from the North and the Midlands to the South, and centres in the great figure of Alfred.
He may have been educated by St Swithun at Winchester, or at Sherborne (Leach argues that the latter is more likely). His own children were taught English literature and Latin, and it was under his influence that England's system of schools began to be reconstructed.
In 1016 Canute, who had previously become a Christian and married the widow of his predecessor Ethelred the Unready, became king of England. For a determined effort to expel the monks from Canterbury and the other monastic cathedrals in England and to reinstate the seculars was frustrated by the now monkish Lanfranc.
Of the 107 pages in his 'Constitutions', which were apparently accepted as a Rule for the whole order of Benedictine monks in England, just two and a half pages were about the boys, and even these 'imply no learning whatever beyond knowing the psalms and services by heart' (Leach 1915:100). In Bristol, for example, the city grammar school was transferred from the governance of the seculars to the regulars on the foundation of Keynsham Abbey in 1171 (Leach 1915:128).
For younger pupils rhetoric became as important as grammar, while for older students the increasing availability of Aristotle's works led to a greater emphasis on logic. This developed rapidly after 1167, when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris.
These early colleges were founded by bishops and catered exclusively for wealthy graduates. In 1355, Edward III paid tribute to the University for its invaluable contribution to learning; he also commented on the services rendered to the state by distinguished Oxford graduates. At first they lived in lodgings, then houses were hired as hostels with a Master in charge of the students. Further studies - in arithmetic, music, geometry and astronomy - led to the degrees of bachelor and master. The first step was enrolment with a licensed master - called 'matriculation' because the scholar's name had to appear on the master's 'matricula' or roll. New colleges or collegiate churches of secular canons, each with its schools of grammar and song, sprang up. The only difference between the university college, with its church attached, and the collegiate church, with its schools of grammar and song attached, was that the latter were primarily for religious services and secondarily for education, and the former were primarily for education and secondarily for religious services. The first of these chantry schools was probably the grammar school at Wotton-under-Edge in Gloucestershire, founded in 1384 by Katharine Lady Berkeley (Taylor 1977:142). They drew increasingly on a single social class, combining the educational methods of the grammar schools and the social training of the chivalric system (of which more below). The charter of foundation was granted in 1382, the buildings were begun in 1387, and the first scholars entered the school in 1394. The school was to be part of a large foundation which included a community of secular priests, ten of whom were Fellows, a pilgrimage church, and an almshouse. At the latter he provided for a master to be paid ?10 a year and an usher (his deputy) ?5, 'to teach all comers freely and gratis without exaction of anything' (quoted in Leach 1915:270).
It is mainly thought of in relation to artistic endeavours - the development of linear perspective in painting, for example - but it also encompassed a resurgence of learning from classical sources and more general 'humanist' educational reform based on reasoning and empirical evidence. As early as the 14th century the Lollards, led by John Wycliffe, and the Hussites, followers of the Czech reformer Jan Hus, began to attack the hierarchical and legalistic structure of the church. Under the direction of John Skelton, Bernard Andre and others, he received the best grammar school, song school and university education of the day. He does, however, warn that 'It is difficult to arrive at a precise estimate of the proportion of schools to population, because, while it is hard to ascertain the exact number of schools, it is even harder, and perhaps impossible, to ascertain the population of England at any given date in the Middle Ages' (Leach 1915:329). Some of the old foundation schools were closed and an equal number of new ones were opened.
Here the monks, who had turned out the canons 600 years earlier, were now turned out to make room for canons.
In 1535 Henry VIII's Vicar-General and chief adviser Thomas Cromwell ordered that copies of William Tyndale's new English Bible were to be placed in every parish church.


Indeed, the brief availability of the English Bible had already encouraged many to learn to read and had made them think about the nature of society and the church.
It is generally viewed as being a feature of the Elizabethan period in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, with writers like William Shakespeare, Christopher Marlowe, Edmund Spenser, Sir Thomas More, Francis Bacon, Sir Philip Sidney and John Milton, architects such as Inigo Jones, and composers Thomas Tallis, John Taverner and William Byrd. As Williams (1961:132) puts it, 'while the schools were reorganised by the Reformation their teaching was not redirected by the Renaissance'. But the education provided by the grammar schools - and by the universities - remained 'rigid and narrow' (Williams 1961:132). In fact, Williams argues that they had 'the paradoxical effect of reducing the status of schools' in favour of an alternative pattern, 'drawing in part on the chivalric tradition, of education at home through a private tutor' (Williams 1961:133), a preference which, for many families, would last well into the nineteenth century.
In particular, it no longer suited the needs of the upper classes, who wanted their sons trained for posts at Court, for diplomacy and for higher appointments in the army.
The labouring poor were largely left out of account, although there are notable cases of individual boys getting a complete education, through school and university, by outstanding promise and merit. In the 17th century England's upper classes sent their sons to private tutors, and then to the continental knightly or courtly academies.
The number of schools increased and there was 'a bewildering variety of forms, ranging from instruction by priests to private adventure schools, often as a sideline to shopkeeping and trade' (Williams 1961:133). Indeed, in a few cases, they virtually took over the running of grammar schools whose old endowments had shrunk. The aim of these schools was to meet the secular needs of a society in which trade was now expanding rapidly and whose administration was becoming more complex.
It was a period of extraordinary expansion: Elizabethan England 'took the world by surprise' - in navigation, commerce, colonisation, poetry, drama, philosophy and science. To the one they will gladlie giue a stipend of 200 crounes by yeare, and loth to offer to the other 200 shillinges. He argued that teachers and learners should leave the divisive sects and unite in common institutions of learning.
It was intended that by-products of this would be the publication of 'universal' books and the setting up of schools for boys and girls. Unfortunately, following the Restoration of Charles II in 1660 there was 'a virtual abandonment of the interventionist role of the state in education provision' (Chitty 2007:9). As a result, many youths were forced to travel to the continent for 'a training foreign both in aims and in means' (Spens 1938:11). During the 18th century their social base widened and their curriculum developed, particularly in mathematics and the natural sciences.
The proportion of students from poorer families - sons of farmers, craftsmen, small tradesmen - fell, though it was still quite substantial.
They still educated most of the clergy, but after the restoration of the monarchy in 1660 they began to discriminate against Nonconformists.
They often provided a wide curriculum, including (in addition to the traditional Greek and Latin), English, modern languages, mathematics and a certain amount of natural science, principally physics. This proved to be something of a mixed blessing, however, because the main aim of the Charity Schools was 'the moral rescue as opposed to the moral instruction of the poor' (Williams 1961:135) and because they established the notion that elementary education was that appropriate to a particular social class.
Too much schooling, they believed, 'would simply make the working poor discontented with their lot' (Chitty 2004:4).
However, progress in establishing a public education system would prove to be painfully slow. To listen to it click here.The outcomes of the Project have been collected together on this website to support the continuing interest in theA teaching of history in schools,A not only amongst researchers, but also within the media and general public at large. The recorded interviews can be found onA their own area of the siteA together with the transcripts which can be searched and downloaded.
They each wroteA self-containedA chapters summarising the 'history of school history', which you can find here.
It is hoped that the website will assist the debate by providing sound historical evidence andA well-informed reflections on the issues. The website contains information about the schools in the study, the project team and the advisory board as well as publishing interim findings. Additionally, it will provide opportunity to engage in research-informed discussion of issues in religious broadcasting for children and young people in historical and contemporary perspective. Contributions on comparative development of education in the international sphere are welcome, along with contributions on new methodological approaches, in particular, research dealing with education in neighbouring regions, but also education of Slovenes abroad, and Slovene educational activities outside Slovene lands.
The abstracts will be notified of their acceptance into the assembly programme by March 15, 2016.

As AF Leach (1915:1) puts it, 'whatever other institutions of Britain, if any, survived its conversion into England, churches and schools did not'. Leach (1915:6) argues that it is a 'perfectly fair inference' that associated schools were founded at the same time. This caused problems for the church because, while it was essential that Latin should be understood, there were concerns that students would read a wide range of Latin literature and 'pagan' philosophy. Consider yourself how serious and shocking it is that a bishop should pursue an activity unsuitable even for a pious layman. Mathematics, including astronomy, was centred on the intricacies of the Church calendar, simple general exercises being an introduction to the all important 'computus' centred on the controversy about the date of Easter. So the school, instead of being restored to its position as a part of the cathedral foundation, as at York and St.
Edmund's School, for example, which had probably been founded as part of a collegiate church before Canute's time, was given an endowment at the end of the twelfth century to convert it into a 'free or partially free grammar school' (Leach 1915:119). The average attainments were limited to reading and writing, to which in the cathedral schools there were added chanting and an elementary knowledge of Latin. In 1188 the historian Gerald of Wales visited Oxford to speak to the dons and two years later Emo of Friesland became the university's first overseas student. By 1226 the scholars had formed themselves into an organisation, represented by an official called a Chancellor. There were no professors: the teaching was conducted by masters who had themselves undertaken the course and who had been approved or 'licensed' by their colleagues (the universitas). Among the earliest were those of Howden in Yorkshire (1266), Glasney, now part of Penryn in Cornwall (1267), Lanchester (1283) and Chester-le-Street (1286). The collegiate church was ad orandum et studendum, the house of scholars at the university ad studendum et orandum. At Cambridge no new colleges were created between 1352, when Corpus Christi College was founded 'expressly to repair the ravages created by the plague of 1349' (Leach 1915:201), and 1439, when God's House (now Christ's College) was founded to restore the supply of grammar masters, the shortage of which had caused dozens of schools to close.
They developed into the 'public schools' (ie private or non-state schools) which still exist today.
At the same time, William of Wykeham also founded New College Oxford, to provide for the further education of his seventy Winchester pupils (Winchester College: History).
Pico della Mirandola's famous public discourse of 1486, De hominis dignitate (Oration on the Dignity of Man), has been seen as the 'Manifesto of the Renaissance'.
But the Reformation is usually reckoned as beginning in 1517, when Martin Luther famously protested at church corruption and the selling of indulgences. So for both political and personal reasons he overthrew Papal power and dissolved the monasteries. In the Sixth Form, they read Erasmus's Copia Verborum and made 'varyings', that is, turned sentences of Latin from the oratio obliqua to the oratio directa, and from one tense and mood to another, 'so as to acquire the faculty of speaking Latin as well as is possible for boys'. For the rest, education was organised in general relation to a firm structure of inherited and destined status and condition: the craft apprentices, the future knights, the future clerisy. The development of this type of school designed for the governing class 'was one of a number of movements which reflected the maladjustment between the classical grammar schools and the needs of contemporary life' (Spens 1938:10).
They taught 'scrivener's English and the casting of accounts' (Williams 1961:133) and in some cases this teaching was adopted by the grammar schools. Much of this was due to 'the immense extension of lay initiative and effort' in every area of national life - 'not least in the sphere of education and the schools' (Leach 1915:332).
God suffereth them, to haue, tame, and well ordered horse, but wilde and vnfortunate children. At the start of the Civil War in 1642 Comenius left England, but the plan was furthered by Samuel Hartlib with the backing of Oliver Cromwell. The liberal movement was checked and the endowed grammar schools tended to become even more conservative than before. They were far less insular than the grammar schools and were influenced indirectly by educational developments in Scotland, Holland, Germany and the Protestant cantons of Switzerland (Spens 1938:12).
Additional data on history examinations and syllabuses compiled for the ProjectA are available here. The assembly is open for participants from abroad, since the conference will be held in Slovene and English. He and his successors established two types of school: the grammar school to teach Latin to English priests, and the song school (which some cathedrals still have today) where the 'sons of gentlefolk' were trained to sing in cathedral choirs. Bede suggests that another school was founded in East Anglia - probably at Dunwich - in 631 by Sigberct, who presided over the kingdom of the East English, and Bishop Felix, a Burgundian who had come to England and been consecrated by Archbishop Honorius, one of the last survivors of Augustine's original band of missionaries.
Music and law were vocational studies for the services and administration of the Church, and the natural history, by contrast with the Aristotelians, was literary and anecdotal. He translated Pope Gregory the Great's Pastoral Care from Latin into English and sent a copy to every cathedral in his kingdom. Paul's, where it was taught and governed by a resident member of the Chapter, was left to the care, necessarily intermittent, of the generally non-resident and roving archbishop, who was more often than not a busy statesman.
Thus the role of teachers began to be formalised: they were licensed rather than simply appointed, and university degrees were licences to teach. Stages in a scholar's progress were marked by 'graduation' ceremonies, with the grades differentiated by variations in the gown, hood and cap. In view of their close connection with the colleges of the new universities, their development had a profound effect on the educational system as a whole. No king ever showed more desire to promote learning and learned men, and none was more impressed and desirous of impressing on others the advantages, or did more for the advancement of education. The grammar school remained central to the system, but there was an important change in its sponsorship.
The third is all for methodizing and contracting cutting of all verbosities and impertinencies whatsoever. In the preface to this book, written around 893, he laments the decline of learning in England which he blames on the Danish invaders.
Some of the masters went on to advanced studies in divinity and law, and a few studied medicine. Reminders of these terms and practices survive to this day (University of Cambridge: a brief history). Whether in the statutes of the realm or in the ordinances and statutes of the many foundations of his time, he was never tired of expatiating on the necessity of education and the benefit that educated men were to church and commonwealth. Whereas the typical medieval grammar school had belonged to the church, the new grammar schools were mostly private foundations 'supervised in variable degree by Church and State' (Williams 1961:132). Examples of the history school work we received, from the 1930s to the early 2000s,A can be found here. The churches which had once been 'filled with treasures and books' had been 'all ravaged and burnt' (quoted in Leach 1915:73).
