A Plea for Ragged Schools, Or, Prevention Better Than Cure

Thomas Guthrie

This influential work was published in 1847 and advocates for the creation and support of schools for impoverished children, who would otherwise not have access to education. Guthrie, a Scottish minister and social reformer, founded several such institutions and believed that education was a way to break the cycle of poverty and social inequality. This book is a passionate argument for the importance of providing education for all, regardless of economic status.
