Did Victorian people go to school?
Education in Victorian times served essentially the same purpose that it serves today; knowledge prepares people for more productive and better paid careers, and for more intellectually rich and rewarding lives. But we can add that due to the lack of child labor laws in Victorian times, children who didn't go to school were in most cases sent to work instead, which made for rather dreary childhoods.
children didnt go to school in Victorian times as schooling was expensive and the vast majority couldn't afford to be educated. money was more important and with money they could feed themselves if nothing else so children were put to work as soon as they could be. hope this helps hun Before the Education act of about 1887, there was no enforced schooling, so if a family were poor, children did not go to school…
