Today, Britian's 18 year olds get their exam results on which university entrance depends. There is a lot of talk in the media about a shortage of university places in the current economic climate.
Today's photo is of a hand coloured illustration from the magazine Punch, one of a number we purchased 15 years ago to grace our new home - I suppose the teaching theme is what attracted us to it.
It is from the 19th November 1887 edition and is entitled THE SCHOOLMASTER OF THE FUTURE (and the sooner we get him the better)
The caption has the workman saying to the teacher, "Bother your 'ologies & 'ometries, let ME teach him something useful"
...have you tried to hire a tradesman recently?
