Joseph Lancaster (1778-1838) led a movement, based in England, to establish schools that used what he called the Monitorial System, sometimes called the "Lancasterian" or "Lancastrian" System, in which more advanced students taught less advanced ones, enabling a small number of adult masters to educate large numbers of students at low cost in basic and often advanced skills. Portrait by J. Hazlitt, in the National Portrait Gallery, London.

You can't save the world if you can't pay the rent. — David Bossie
You do not need to register or log in to view much of the content on this site, but you do for some things to which access is limited. We ask for a donation of at least $25/year to post comments, and at least $50/year to participate in blogs and forums and to contact other members. It is a donation, and we reserve the right to grant privileges to some who don't donate, and to withhold them from some who do, depending on the quality of their contributions. For this project to work we also need you to recruit participants that can form a core of dedicated members who don't waste one another's time. This can be the effort that will work, but it takes you to make that happen.
