Abstract

[Section 18 of the 1918 Education (Scotland) Act—described by historians such as T. M. Devine as the Magna Carta of Scottish Catholicism—has partly overshadowed what Roman Catholics had achieved up until then in terms of education. This chapter sets off to examine the originality of the Catholic schooling system in the West of Scotland in the Victorian era. The Catholics were not the only ones having to accommodate the children of urban workers with very limited means and prospects to educate their children. Did they fare better than the other denominations? What was the purpose of the Catholic Church in maintaining, often at a very high degree of financial sacrifice, separate schools? To examine these issues, this chapter relies on the analysis of primary sources such as the school logbooks, correspondence by priests, annual Catholic directories and reports on schools and school board activities.]
