This pioneering work by Patrick Colquhoun provides a visionary blueprint for the education of working-class children in the early 19th century. Written in response to what the author saw as the shortcomings of the prevailing educational system, the book lays out a detailed plan for the establishment of free schools that would provide both religious and moral instruction to their students. With its emphasis on practical skills and its commitment to social justice, A New and Appropriate System of Education is a landmark in the history of education.
