How has the Empire been taught in British Schools

The Village Schoolmaster

This 1842 picture by Charles West Cope illustrates the way that schoolmasters were expected to teach a range of ages and abilities - although usually for payment of some kind. This meant that it tended to be the children of the more well to do who would be educated. Although the very wealthy might have governors or governesses dedicated to their children's education.
