Administrative / Biographical History

Jordanhill College of Education, Glasgow (now the Faculty of Education in the University of Strathclyde) had its origins in the transfer of the responsibility for education from church to secular bodies. Under the Education (Scotland) Act 1872 (35 & 36 Vict., c. 62) the control of schools in Scotland was passed from heritors and kirk sessions to local school boards, but churches continued to be responsible for teacher training colleges. By the early 20th century, however, this was an increasing financial burden for religious bodies and negotiations began to transfer the training colleges to secular control.
