This chapter discusses Scottish education and the supply of schools before 1872. It describes the numbers and types of school, classification of schools and pupils by type of school, parish schools and schools in the rural lowlands, highlands, and cities. The 1872 Act was to sweep away both ancient parish schools and the denominational system. Yet the latter had put down its own roots in its thirty years of operation and many older habits were to survive for at least a generation after 1872.
