Brief History of Prefect Badges and the Prefectorial System November 28 2013
The roots of England's educational system is said to stretch all the way back to 500s. At the time, educators were more focused on teaching Latin, religion and music
As the years went on, the scope of the country’s educational structure increased and the prefectorial system was born. Put into play by Dr. Thomas Arnold in the 1800s, it was initially designed to teach children about responsibility, authority and social structure. By the time the 19th Century arrived, Arnold’s system was widely used by educational institutions located all across the UK. Although the system’s popularity has fluctuated over the years, it still remains in use today by many well respected institutions around the world.
