The social problems accompanying industrialization and rapid urban growth provoked a widespread debate which forced education onto the political agenda, and the new ideas about teaching methods, curricula and the physical and moral care of children, developed rapidly. This study, based on records of the Admiralty Schools at Greenwich, provides an insight into the problems and the achievements of mid-19th century schools, catering for a range of pupils.
