Wood's dispatch on eduation in 1854 laid the foundation on which the educational system has since developed. Sir Charles Wood was the President of the Board of Control in the coalition ministry of the earl of Aberdeen. According to Charles Wood the English institutions could serve as the useful model for education. In 1854 Wood prepared his comprehensive dispatch on the scheme of the future education in India. The dispatch came to be considered as the magna Carta of English education in India. The scheme of education as is proposed by Wood's Dispatch envisaged a co-ordinated system of education on an all Indian basis.

Please explain to me what "dispatch" and "earl of" means here.

Hi,

Wood's dispatch on eduation in 1854 laid the foundation on which the educational system has since developed. Sir Charles Wood was the President of the Board of Control in the coalition ministry of the earl of Aberdeen. An earl is a person who occupies one of the many levels of the English system of nobility. The title usually reflects the area that he lives in.

eg If I were an earl, I might be 'the Earl of Toronto'. Emotion: smile

Have you heard of my namesake, Clive of India, who was a famous British figure in India in the 18th, century? He was a Baron, which is another level of English nobility.



According to Charles Wood the English institutions could serve as the useful model for education. In 1854 Wood prepared his comprehensive dispatch on the scheme of the future education in India. The dispatch an official government letter or communication, usually sent from one level or unit of government to another.

came to be considered as the magna Carta of English education in India. The scheme of education as is proposed by Wood's Dispatch envisaged a co-ordinated system of education on an all Indian basis.

Please explain to me what "dispatch" and "earl of" means here.
