Thirteen years after beginning his educational reform and with the additional funds provided by the Junta de Providência Literaria, Pombal turned his attention to elementary schools.   In the first attempt at universal education in the kingdom, he set up numerous such schools throughout Portugal and her colonies, and aimed to employ over 800 schoolmasters to provide every town with a school (see Veríssimo Serrão, História de Portugal VI, p. 257).
