World Bank Poetry

How the Education Strategy 2020 Imagines the World
  • Bjorn Harald Nordtveit
Part of the Comparative and International Education book series (CIEDV, volume 14)


This well-known nursery rhyme had a different ending line until the middle of the eighteenth century, when the more palatable “one for the little boy who lives down the lane” substituted “none for the little boy who cries in the lane.” The text in all probability refers to a royal tax of six shillings imposed on wool in 1275, representing one-third of the wool income that henceforth needed to be paid to “the master” (the king).
