Thank goodness we are not in the 19th century but here’s a brief glimpse of what is was like then and no school uniforms in sight!
At the start of the 19th century very few children went to school. Most poor children worked. If they went to school, their families lost the money they earned.
There were some good schools for boys, for example, grammar schools and public schools. Only richer families could afford to pay the school fees, though some schools gave free places to poor boys. Poor girls did not go to school when the Victorian age began meaning they had little education. Girls from well to do families would usually be taught at home by a governess. Sometimes attending boarding schools too.
