  The early days of the local schools  
 

The children of the poor did not go to school at all in the early years of Queen Victoria's reign. They went out to work as soon as they were old enough to help bring in money to feed the family.Engraving of schoolboys
The children of the wealthier landowners and businessmen were taught at home or sent to local private schools.
By the end of the Victorian age free schools had been set up and all children had to go to school.
