Beginning with a discussion of pre-European education, to the earliest schools set up by settlers and the development of the infrastructure of the school system.
This talk includes examination of the contributions of two North York residents, C. W. Jefferys and Herbert H. Carnegie, to the content of education which continues to affect and improve the knowledge of students in North York and far beyond its boundaries.
