Education of the Poor
Education of the Poor.
Dr. Parr preached two sermons at Norwich on the Education of the Poor and on the Truth and Usefulness of Christianity. These two sermons are not only an era in Parr's life, but form an epoch in the history of education; they do honor to him as the advocate of the poor, and as a pioneer on the great work of general instruction—to his moral sensibilities and insight into human character—and to the foresight of that progress which intellect was making, and which demands in our days a repeal of every law which obstructs the access of the meanest individual to true and vital religion.
