Summary
Although general histories of education help us to understand the origins of the English education system, there has been little emphasis on women's place in its development. By widening the perspective to consider the role of women as educational policy-makers, it is possible to gain a clearer understanding of this vital period both for women and for the development of a state education system. This book considers the link between private lives and public practice by focusing on the biographies of the twenty-nine women members of the London School Board. These political activists were among the first women in England to be elected to positions of political responsibility, and their role as educational policy-makers is important. Key concerns are gender and power and gender and welfare: issues that are as relevant to contemporary debates in education as they were in Victorian and Edwardian England
