What sort of home life, schooling, and "opportunities" would children like the Cratchits' children have had in 1843 London?

They would have had very little schooling. They were part of the poor masses in Victorian England. With luck, the boys might get an apprenticeship and eventually a trade. They would still remain poor. The girls would get married and have children.
