Storyboard Text

  • Hi. I am Catherine Beecher. I am a proud advocate for women's education.
  • I believed that women needed to be educated so that they could excel at their jobs as wives and mothers.
  • Hi, I am Horace Mann. Some people call me "The Father of Public Education". 
  • When I was 16 years old, I was taken out of school to help raise my younger siblings.  2 years later I took up a job at a private girls school as a teacher.
  • I started Central Committee for Promoting National Education. I trained hundreds of women and sent them to the Wild West to teach pioneer children.
  • I wanted every child to get an education no matter where they lived and grew up.
  • My efforts helped to urge the Massachusetts legislature to require all children to obtain a public education and allow me the funding required for a teaching institute.
  • I was also the secretary of the first board of education in 1837. I led the charge for the nation's first statewide public school system.
