For The Love I Beare To Learning
During the Tudor period, people increasingly saw the value of education both for themselves and for their children. This was primarily because they realized there was an increasing demand for literate men to fill a wide variety of bureaucratic positions in the expanding state. This shift in perception undoubtedly affected the status of the teachers who provided this education, both in other people’s eyes and in their own, and there is firm evidence of scholarly practitioners who were dedicated to their work.
This purpose of this book is to examine the position of teachers during this period and consider matters such as their social status, their financial position, their working lives and their professional concerns.
