Abstract

To launch the History of Education Society UK's brand new podcast during this year's virtual conference, we spoke to Professor Jane Martin about the 150th anniversary of the 1870 Education Act. We talk about how and why the Act emerged; its connections to early socialist and feminist movements; the impact of the Act on working-class children and girls' education; how the Act played a role in the early development of the welfare state; and what we can learn about education provision and local democracy in the twenty-first century.
