Education in the 19th century In the 19th century education greatly improved. In the early 19th century there were dame schools for very young children. They were run by women who taught a little reading, writing and arithmetic.
Victorian Era She married with her first cousin, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, in 1840. Queen Victoria (Alexandrina Victoria;24 May 1819 – 22 January 1901) was the monarch of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 20 June 1837 until her death. From 1 May 1876, she used the additional title of Empress of India.
About school in the Victorian era Thomas Arnold, the poet's father, assumed the headmastership of Rugby, Public Schools had become characterized by dreadful teaching, archaic curricula, bullying, sexual abuse, and dreadful living conditions. Rugby led the way in raising the general moral tone of Public Schools and for a time even pioneered modern practices of art education for children and other innovations. Nonetheless, even at their best, Public Schools concerned themselves more with producing gentlemen than with preparing their graduates for the economic, political, and technological challenges facing contemporary England. Some observers in fact blame the Public Schools for much of England's subsequent economic and political decline.
