An early Scottish tradition – fostering children’s education to read and write. Remarkable – a very high percentage of men and women in the country have long been able to at least sign their name. Stuart Hudson (retired Head of English) will explain how the Education Act in 1872 greatly extended this education, building on a plethora of schooling endeavours over several centuries at the Victoria University of Wellington Law School, Old Government Buildings, Lambton Quay.
