Administrative / Biographical History
School boards were set up under the Elementary Education Act 1870. They were elected bodies, empowered to levy a rate to establish and maintain schools in districts where voluntary provision was inadequate, to frame bye-laws for the compulsory attendance of children aged between 5 and 13, and for setting the school leaving age. The 1902 Education Act replaced school boards with local education authorities.
