Schooling in New South Wales 1880 to 1914

Firth, Stewart George


The main aim of this study is to examine formal education as a means of social control, and its main subject is Public primary schooling in New South Wales from 1880 to 1914. There are two subsidiary themes as well: what Public schools were really like, as distinct from what the Department of Public Instruction intended them to be; and how the values and attitudes taught in Public schools differed from those of Catholic schools.
