Since the famous Education Act of 1870, Bradford has been a national pioneer in education and child development. Educating Bradford is a family friendly exhibition that: · celebrates 150 years of education in Bradford, from 1870 to the present day; · shows how modern teaching methods are still influenced by 19th and 20th century educational and child healthcare reforms; · charts the development of adult learning; recognition that an educated workforce helped support the development of Bradford as an international powerhouse. This is an evolving exhibition that, like a child, will develop and grow throughout the year. This exhibition is inspired by the landmark book Education in Bradford 1870-1970 which provided a detailed description and celebration of learning in the city. 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of its publication.
