29 It is, therefore, difficult to know exactly how many older children were compelled to leave their employment to become school pupils. IDENTITIES AND DEFINITIONS 27 Whatever the ‘educational’ benefits, in prohibiting full-time wage-labour, schooling probably reduced older children’s sense of their own value, especially those who were conscious of the significance of their contributions to the family economy. They were now no longer included in the assumptions covered by the moral belief that a fair day’s work should be met by a fair day’s wage (though no doubt they were always at the margin of this assumption).

It was not alone in this process, for as the century came to a close other agencies and philosophies were also reconceptualising the child’s condition. But the classroom and the ideological apparatus of education were crucial because they demanded— indeed, could not do without—a truly national childhood, which ignored (certainly in theory) rural/urban distinctions, as well as those of social class.
