Ragged Schools were developed from the work of someone called John Pounds. John Pounds was a Portsmouth shoemaker who in 1818 provided something called a free school for the really poor children. A man called Thomas Guthrie helped to promote John Poundsí idea of free education for working children, and he started another ragged school in Edinburgh. A further away school in Aberdeen was set up by Sheriff Watson. In 1844, a man called Lord Shaftesbury formed the Ragged School Union which eventually made over 200 free schools for poor children and upper class children.
