Fulfilling a Vision

The Contribution of the Church of Scotland to School Education, 1772–1872

Fulfilling a Vision

Education has contributed enormously to the Scottish national character. The emphasis has always been on making a good education available to all and on giving those with talent every opportunity of advancement. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, however, it was clear that the provision of schooling was failing to meet the needs of an expanding population and the growth and diversification of the economy. In 1824 the Church of Scotland began an ambitious program to tackle the problem. In setting up new schools and the first teacher training colleges, the Church saw itself as supplementing an existing system of national education for which it shared a statutory managerial responsibility. This book offers an account of the struggles and achievements of the Church of Scotland over some fifty years as it sought to control and strengthen school education throughout the country. In so doing, it furthered the model of education for which Scotland became famous. Readers interested in current debates about the curriculum and standards in school education, the involvement of parents, the place of religious education, and the desirability or otherwise of faith schools will recognize their beginnings in these pages.

Julia and the Third Bad Thing

Julia and the Third Bad Thing

"Bad things always happen in threes!" If a very old person like Grandmama says it, is it not true? This is the very normal, understandable worry eight-year-old Julia has when she has knocked a burning hot iron into her little sister's hand. The first bad thing! And surely two more must follow, if Grandmama says so. What will they be? When will they happen? This is an enormous worry, indeed! Although this gentle story about a family with three little girls takes place in Russia at the turn of the twentieth century, it has universal appeal, as both family life, and eight-year-old Julia's fears and concerns are all so true and believable. Perhaps this is because they are true, inspired by the real-life experiences of the author's mother.
