The author looks at the cultural change in the link between the government and education in Great Britain. It has been observed that there is a lack of effective industrial education in Great Britain as compared to France, Belgium, Switzerland, Prussia and Austria. In a speech given by Sir William Curtis in 1795, he described the 3 Rs, which included reading and writing, arithmetic and reckoning and wrighting and wroughting. This triangle was the basis for the Signposter Programme in the country.
