School were only taught by men who were uneducated and illiterate.
I wish I could go to school, but I'm stuck working in the factories
Only the rich had the ability to go to school because of its cost and the poor people had to work in the factories for little pay.
Schools should be available to every child and have trained and educated teachers.
Horace Mann was an advocate for better schools, infrastructure, and asylums. He believed in better education for children because they are the future of the country.
As part of the Massachusetts Board of Education, Mann spread his ideas about better education. Massachusetts agreed, but he wanted reform for the entire country.
Schools should be paid for with taxes.
Horace Mann initiated the Common School Movement where people all over the country pushed for a better, tax-funded education system that would help children get out of working at such an early age and recieve a quality education.
Because of Horace Mann and other education reformers, schools were now maintained and affordable. Children were taught by trained teachers and were able to get a good education.
