A godless education was virtually non-existent in Britain before the nineteenth century. Today, Christian schooling is an exception. This chapter looks at Christianity and education, particularly charity schools, Sunday schools, and ragged schools. It links these institutions to welfare and associational democracy, and examines the effects of state intervention from the mid-nineeenth century onwards, which eventually led to the decline of Christian teaching, and with it, Christianity.

Keywords:   education, charity schools, Sunday schools, ragged schools, state intervention
