The need for universal education book
In January 1804 the Society for Bettering the Condition of the Poor outlined a suggested inquiry into the existing condition of charity and other schools so as to make possible an extension of educational provision among the poor. It proposed this should ascertain:
1. The places in which those schools are entirely adequate to the object; 2. The places where a greater extension of their benefits is wanted, and such
extension is practicable; and 3. Those where new schools for the poor are necessary or expedient.
