CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: Following the 1902 Education Act, school boards were abolished and responsibility for local education passed to Borough and County Councils. These new Local Education Authorities (LEAs) were given powers to establish new secondary and technical schools, as well as developing the existing system of elementary schools. Many evening schools and classes were also set up under the provision of the 1902 Act to provide education for adults. The 1944 Education Act raised the school leaving age to 15 and provided universal free schooling in 3 types of schools; Grammar, Secondary Modern and Technical with entry via the 11+ examination.
