The School (Board) Match
'The School (Board) Match', 1873. Various nonconformist factions are involved in the School (Board) Match being umpired by Mr William Forster. The education football lies forgotten at the front of the cartoon. In November 1873, the second London School Board was elected but, as always, the in-fighting of the different religious groups predominated. This was because Gladstone had famously agreed an amendment that limited religious education in Board Schools to Bible reading and hymn-singing. Many were satisfied with this, but many others believed that the whole basis of education should be religious. From Punch, or the London Charivari, December 6, 1873.
