Free education controversy in Liverpool


October 17, 1892
The controversy which has been going on for some time between the Liverpool School Board and the Vigilance Committee to enforce free education in board schools to-day reached an acute phase by the summary dismissal of the managers of one of the schools who had invited the parents to say whether they wished for free education. To-day over 200 children were sent home from another school for their pennies.
