This chapter looks selectively at what the experience of elementary education meant and what might it lead to. The first section discusses the development of educational techniques and of the curriculum. In Scotland, much discussion focused on education as a means of individual mobility and on the link between schools and universities. This chapter explains in detail education and social mobility, and self-help and technical education.
