Education during the 1500-1600's in England
By: Morgan and Sasha

What a school day was like.
Children would spend three years at nursery school then after that they would move to grammar school.
Students were only allowed two holidays which were two weeks each.
The two holidays were Christmas and Easter.
They only had Sundays off.
School began at 6 a.m. and lunch would be at 11 a.m. then afternoon lessons would resume from 1 p.m.-5 p.m.
Overview Information
St. Augustine started the first school because he needed priest to conduct church services and boys to sing in the choir.
Him and his predecessors designed two types of schools.
1. Grammar school- which taught Latin to English priest.
2. Song school- trained 'sons of gentlefolks' to sing in cathedral choirs.
Why they went to school.
Being educated during this time was a way of showing off wealth and social class.
Middle class and upper class children were educated to learn respect for their parents, table manners, their place in society, and grammar.
Girls education tended to be slightly different in that they focused mostly on obeying the male members of the family and housewifely duties as well as dance and music.
What they learned.
The first three years of their education was taught at home by their parents learning respect and table manners.
The first year of grammar school they were taught parts of speech together with verbs and nouns.
The second year they were taught rules of grammar and sentence structure.
The third year they concentrated on English to Latin and Latin to English translations.
General studies were language translations, literature, some Greek, Religion, and arithmetic.
Who went to school
School was mainly designed for rich children.
More specifically rich males.
Boys could receive at secondary schools and universities advanced education, which included Latin, Philosophy, and law.
Girls were occasionally instructed in these subjects by private tutors.
Formal schooling was mostly confined to the middle class.
The nobility generally taught their children at home, where as poor- laborers and peasants- often did not attend school because they couldn't afford the fees.
Churches sometimes ran charity schools which the poor could attend.
Schools and education have changed and advanced since the 1500's-1600's. Who went to school and how school was conducted has changed drastically from how we experience school today.
Main Idea
The Renaissance by James A. Corrick
Education in the Elizabethan era was very different from our education now.
They focused mostly on grammar and religion and only the upper and middle class were offered education.
Today education is offered and required by everyone and we have a broader selection of topics to study.
The education systems from that time period have transformed and advanced over the years giving everyone an equal opportunity at having an education and not basing it off of wealth.
