A Brief History of the Ragged Schools by Alex Dunedin

Andrew Bell
Andrew Bell

Ragged schools is a name commonly given after about 1840 to the many independently established 19th century charity schools in the United Kingdom which provided entirely free education and, in most cases, food, clothing, lodging and other home missionary services for those too poor to pay. Here he talks about the Madras peer led teaching method and how the Ragged Schools can be reanimated in this age with the technology now available.

Alex gave this talk on the 5th of July 2012
