afterwards —in 1880, up to the age of ten; in 1893, up to the age of eleven; and not until 1918 up to a minimum age of fourteen.® Substantial provision of secondary education began even later. The numbers of pupils in the boys' " public schools " had never been large, and by the early nineteenth century those schools had ceased to draw, to any appreciable extent, upon the general population. Nor did the endowed grammar schools cover more than a small fraction of children. Even after the work of the Endowed School Commis- sioners, by 1895, the total number of

a model republic, socially and politically different from any society in the past. T o that end he envisaged a new educational pattern composed of several parts.2 First of all, free elementary schools were to be provided for all future citizens. Second, free education of a more advanced nature was to be provided for a selected group of poor boys through a series of residential grammar schools which were also to serve the well- to-do on a tuition basis. The selective process was to proceed in stages over a period of years. Third, a university education was

177 ABOUT THE AUTHOR Wade C. Sherbrooke grew up on Staten Island, before the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge connected it to the rest of New York City (1940s and 1950s). Here, where he played as a child, he found hardwood de- ciduous woodlands with red- backed salamanders, ponds visited by painted and snap- ping turtles, blackberry thick- ets visited by box turtles, and marshes filled with birds and mammals. Today, the area is covered by houses filled with the accoutrements of modern society, as well as city parks. While in grammar school, raising and racing pigeons

Yet these middle 190 The Radical Will years of what used to be called the "grammar school" are now left not only unmotivated, but without any genuine educational function. Instead of being prophetic of the future they merely drag along the relics of the past. Some schools, it is true, have timidly brought down the beginning of high school studies into the lower grades, but in general the "grammar school" merely continues the interests of the primary school on substantially the same lines

CHAPTER XI Equipment: organization: discipline School work in ancient times began at a very early hour. Rather in the way that the old English grammar schools might be instructed by statute to commence 'at sixe of the clocke', or at six in summer and seven in winter, [1] Roman schoolmasters, by a generally accepted tradition, awaited their pupils at the crack of dawn. Martial says that even before cock-crow boys were on their way to school, and would stop on the way to break their fast at a baker's shop. [2] On dark winter mornings, the 'pedagogue' would
