Six Schools in London

In researching this page, I came across some other ground breaking work in teaching Sunday school students. On August 13th 1736, the "Society Promoting Sunday Schools" was founded and between 1736 and 1841 had one and a quarter million Sunday school students enrolled. The Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge (S.P.C.K) founded six day schools in London in 1700, and by 1704 had fifty four schools with three thousand students. By 1712, one hundred and seventeen schools with five thousand students existed. By 1741 they had two thousand schools. These and other magnificent efforts were happening in England under the hand of God to promote schools and provide for students.✞
