The last half of the nineteenth century in England was marked by continued industrialization of the country, liberalization of the eduction system, a growing social conscience, and a profusion of social legislation. All these factors, of course, contributed to the improved way of life of Englishmen, during the early twentieth century. Each factor is closely related to all other factors, and each one could be substantiated by excellent sources as a major contribution to the improved conditions of the life of Englishmen. This paper, however, will be limited to discussing the improved education system and the resulting social legislation.
