It made the British economy the worlds industrial leader, made British economy very prosperous, made machinery cheap, merchant all over the world purchased seed cotton, England became the greatest iron producer, and because of rail-ways communication was improved. The 19th century government provided more money to support schools and ordered more hours of school a day for all kids, because of this more students learned reading, writing, and math. One positive effect that is helping to fix a negative effect is education. The solution for child labor should be obvious that children should not be working 13 hour days in poor conditions, they should be in school were they are not being beaten. Urbanization led to many bad effects like a dramatic increase in population between 1750 and 1851, compacting farms which displaced many families, over population in cities, poor conditions in workers houses, forcing orphans to live on the streets, it increased the chances of getting disease, the crime rate skyrocketed, and the life expectancy dropped. To improve the problems of urbanization like the increasing population problem they should control the birth rate, and to solve the other problems of urbanization they should improve workers houses, get medicine to take care of the sick, and set up some sort of police system.

Modern building attributed to some of the positive effects of the industrial revolution because now the smog from the factories blew away from the homes. Very few children received education and many children experienced a lack of clothing.
