Education, politics and society in Leicester 1833-1940
Rimmington, Gerald T. (1975) Education, politics and society in Leicester 1833-1940. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The period of educational history between 1833 and 1940 has been one of rapid change, to be compared with the mid-seventeenth century, with its Commonwealth thinkers and experimenters, and its aftermath of dissenting academies, promoting disparate philosophical outlooks. Acting and reacting upon one another in 1833-1940 were conflicting groups, that a newly achieved democracy allowed to flourish. An increasingly articulate electorate able to encompass many different points of view made it certain that bodies like the short-lived school boards would be microcosms of the communities that they served.
