Ellis (1800–1881), economist and educational reformer, sought to inculcate useful knowledge by 'investigation and well-directed research', rather than rote learning, always with a view to the most important knowledge of all : 'the knowledge of the laws of conduct which affect human well-being and the obedience to which only can the welfare of the individual and the community be obtained'. - Blyth.
