London School Board

The London School Board , elected in 1870, under the new Education Act, has its locale  at 33 New Bridge Street, Blackfriars.  It has, practically speaking, almost entire control of the educational systems of the metropolis, and is armed with inquisitorial powers that remind us of the ancient Star Chamber.  Still, the system of election of the members of the Board gives a certain guarantee of responsibility, that makes its prestige, at least, without suspicion.
