Storyboard Text

  • What does this say?? Hmm.. I guess I could just teach a bunch of random stuff...
  • Schools were taught by inexperienced men who were usually illiterate.
  • I wish I could afford to go to school... but instead, I have to go work in a factory.
  • Schools were only available for the rich. Poor kids had to go work for small wages in order to support their families and didn't have time for school.
  • This is all wrong! Schools should be available to every child and have well-trained teachers!
  • Horace Mann, an advocate of better schools, infrastructure, and asylums, believed in a better education for children because kids are the future.
  • 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 payed 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.
  • This is great!
