Page history last edited by Dawn Pipis 9 years, 2 months ago

Victorian texts added to this page can cover any aspect of education -- schools of all types, the move towards compulsory education, governesses and tutors within the homes, the training of teachers, the formation of professional degree programs, the admittance of women to universities, and so on.  Please limit texts on this page, however, to items dealing with education in the systemic sense of forms of schooling or technical training rather than interpreting the term more loosely to mean "learning about something."


To make this process easier, the Directions for Adding Pages to this site will open in a second window of your browser.  In brief, you will have to both create the page and properly archive it so that you, your teacher, your peers, and others who come to use this site, can locate it again.  Please follow the directions carefully.
