Colonial Period 17th and 18th Century.
1620-1782
New purpose of education.
1803 when Jefferson wrote his article we see idea of educated
electorate.
Separation of church and state.  Interesting since the school
system began with this idea.  Regional
discontented Puritans to  Holland and then to America.  Left
Holland because the kids started learning Dutch and
intermarrying.  Puritanism was being diluted.  1620 got Va
Company to come to Jamestown.  Off course and ended up in
Plymouth, then  got Mass Bay Colony.  1630 second wave of
Anglicans and formed Congregationalists.  The church set it all
up. Mass Puritans pure and pious folks.  School on hill for all
to emulate.  Puritans are an intolerant lot.  Anne Hutchinson and
Roger Williams.
Anne no need for clergy to interpret for community.  Both Anne
and Roger went to RI.  Reading will concentrate on Puritan
concept of reading scriptures.  Reading Bible was moral and
spiritual necessity.  
Puritans have highly intelligent.  Literacy was measured by who
could write their name on church register.  Only men were
literate since only men could read.  Education does not mean
schooling.  The job of the parents was to educate the kids. 
1681-1791 How did women get recorded? wills, land..
How can you work and educate at the same time?  friends, church, 
primary task was survival and the constant work would cause the
breakdown of family.  TODAY?
Colonies got from King in 1642 to get money to educate kids. 
Select kids to see if the could read scripture and knew laws, if
they had no skills then they were apprenticed MODELLING if
education poor they were fined.  Poor would slothful.  If you
didn't teach to read they were taken from you.  This was the
beginning  of compulsory education.  It was the parent's job to
educate kids.   All kids born ignorant and prone to sin.  kids 6-
18 boys and girls alike.  Downside was exploitation of poor
because selectman could take kids and apprentice them so the
haves gain from the have nots.  It as the selectman's call.  Also
way to maintain the Puritan lifestyle.  Adopted by all colonies
except RI.  Puritan educate kids.
1647 Mass general court made provisions for educ policy.
Deluder law  Satan was the deluder.
Class issue, why should I pay for someone else's  kid.  This is
called charity schooling.

Barns round so Satan couldn't hide.
Dame schools because hard to find Latin teachers.
Babysitting was a primary function.  No quality control or
curriculum for Dame schools.  So basic literary skills might not
be taught.  First of daycare.  Problem is pop is going and  can't
handle pop.  Discussion of schoolroom.  Students had to provide
firewood.  Sorta like a scholarship.

Schoolmasters, not teachers but masters of kids.  Colleges
prepared for ministry, law, not educ.  Teachers revealed for
disciplinarian: quick with rod, hand, loud of voice.  Curriculum
was reading and writing.

Handout 7/8/01 handout learning alphabet had a moral message,
too.

Boys enter at age 7: read, write and Latin.  Greek and Hebrew,
too.
Boston Latin first grammar school in 16
Tie between rel and educ very strong.  Ministers the most educ in
society.
Piety is conected with material success.  You are pious because
you are wealthy, which was your grade.  Class ranking.  this is
Puritan work ethic.
Girls educ.  Where? They too had to be saved.  Intellectual
pursuits too trenuous but chores no problem.  In off times women
taught girls.  Pay was lower, not college educated and they were
women.  Women will evolve in late 17th Cent.  

Indians and Blacks educ.  No records in 1600's.  Very little
opportunity. Christianizing them was the mission.  Harvard had a
house for Indians. DARTMOUTH?? CORNELL?? 

Slavery did exist in North and could get freedom after awhile. 
Easier to have an indentured servant rather than a slave.  North
not condusive to slavery.  1783 Mass abolished slavery.  Purpose
to read was to read scriptures.  Trained for life of service and
hence would be better servants. 1827 first black grad of college,
Bowdain, 200 yrs after brought here.

In South, against law for slaves to read and write. Georgia
started as a penal colony.  Different climate from NE or England. 
Considered a punishment.  Maryland settled by Catholics.  NE was
egalatarian while South was aristocratic. Pyramid.  ocia need in
NE not so in South.  Educ was a private matter not a public
matter.  Wealthy hired tutors.  Sent their sons abroad to England
to learn.  Pop dispersement was immense, one crop:cotton.  I NE
socialunit was town, in south it was family so no gathering of
community.  No large urban centers: Charleston.  Women were not
encouraged to learn since it would scare away the men.  An
English hierachy of wealth, of class.  

Two extremes in North and south.  More emphasis in educ, wealth. 
In south wealthy want to keep it.  In 1600's South is 200 yrs
behind in having public schools.

Mid-Atlantic: faced problem of heterogenaity.  In NY 18 diff
lang.  All educ systems are different and this is really see in
this region.  School committees begin to emerge as they replace
town metings.  Schools become centralized.  Then my kids won't be
in a school with "those" kids.  A voucher system of sorts.

they had to survive.  Whose morals? values?  It is obvious. 
Schools not effective 1655-1700's.  Fr-Ind war, Br used taxes to
pay for fights.  Rev war also compromises educ.

What is the expectation of schooling?  Is it babysitting?  What
family can't do.  Transferance of values.  Schools to let kids
discover themselves, a practice field, learn how to learn.

In economic booms things get better:  The arts Cooper, Whitman,
     Melville and Emerson, Thoreau.  What we really need is a
     simple life.  Popular is the communal living.  Utopias:

     community until Utah; live in harmony with each other.
temperance movement; these were taken on by women, they could

     are a calming effect esp with kids.  revivals aided the

     fear of kids and for kids.  Maintain Puritan  ideas because
     of increase in complexity and temptations.
feminism and the rights of women:  You don't know when your
     getting it until history comes along. Women teachers
     couldn't date, had many rules unlike the male teachers.  Yes
     they had indep, but they still a long way to go.  As women
     gain confidence some names Dorthea Dix, Emma Hart Willard,
     Eliz Caty Stanton, Wyoming only state that women could vote
     1840's, Antoinette Blackwood friends with Stone at Oberlin
     which was first college to admit women (coed) the 1833 
     Ohio.  That women could learn with men was horrendous idea.
     Ober was training ministers and teachers for the nation
     preparing for the dying death.  Since they were doing this
     it seemed logical to pair them up for this.  They also
     admitted first black students in 1834.  Abolishonists and
     reformers at school.  A very progressive school. Sexism
     wasn't divided by color.  With black freedom abolishionists
     left women's group which caused great rifts.  Heretofore
     both groups were one. Women were turned turned away from
     abolitionist meetings in London; 1% were abolitionists; Met
     in Seneca Falls and created group and wrote up their own
     revolution.

Colonization: sending freed blacks back to Africa: Liberia.  1)
     didn't want them 2) to return them home.  Problem they were
     born here, they were Americans, They weren't African
     anymore.  France today. Still need labor even after Civil
     War.  South believed this so strongly.  South found this
     idea horrible.  Marcus Garvey later on (20th cent) held this
     idea, but he was black.  Ending slavery and sending them
     back.  real problem was who was going to pay for this.  The
     economics it always comes down to the money which killed
     this idea.  
Wm Lloyd Garrison brought about the idea of abolition.  Total to
     end slavery, don't end them anywhere.  The Liberator was his
     paper "I will be heard."  Fred Douglass was important to but
     more on him later.  Underground railroad: Harriet Tubman a
     mythical person, no turning back if with her, even in north
     not acceptable  so had to hide.
Manifest destiny plays a role. War with Mexico begins idea "might
     makes right." grace of god, manifest destiny.  more about
     economics and power than education. 
Regionalism is taking over.  In older communities esp New England
     education was hot topic.  Kaestle p 100 literacy rate in US

     heterogen on religion and not race.  Common purpose, a
     public philosophy, nation can't be ignorant and free, idea
     is Mann's idea.  Public ed began in Mass.  Fear foreign
     monarchies and NY had better schools was the motivating
     force for publically funded schools in Mass. Always inferior
     when we compare self to others.  Mass feels important.  Gov
     asks Mann to head BOE in Mass. as sec of education.  
Horace Mann at Brown U: law or ministry.  @12 he broke from
     Calvinist tradition, he didn't have the belief.  The role of
     BOE "enlightenment"; profesionalizes teachers; makes 6 month
     school year; brought curriculum; Why should citizens pay
     txes to support schools if they didn't have any or sent them
     elsewhere.  Common school was not Charity school.  THIS IS
     MAJOR  POINT.  Doubtfuk that Mann's plan could be
     successful.  What is the common American culture?

OUR PIECE:

Is divided into 3 sections: 1) he presents the problem, evils,
the -cides, vices, etc.  That naturally man is homicidal then
suicidal so he needs controls.  2) he speaks of how man has tried
to assign morality on mankind.  He suggests that there have been
many experiments and obviously none have worked.  3) However in
the third section he suggests the one experiment yet to be
tested: education. He says: "Train up a child in the way he
should go, and when he is old he wil not depart from it." 
Education has never been brought in to solve this problem.  He
wishes to concentrate on the child and he has wonderful images of
the students: the 
raw material
embryos of talent
nursling of our schools
rising generation
lithe sapling
tender germ
analogy: schoolroom:society::infant:adult

This is leading to his big finale on the subject of Religion.

Purpose: influence politicans and policy makers, and enlightened
     public, [showing off, self-aggrandizement,] need for moral
     center, instill self control not govt control, give strong
     foundation, prevention not prison, 

Presentation style: You are all sinners a la J Edwards: he is a
     good speechifier from his own religious background and
     training, and following

Assumption: morality can be taught and child can learn it,
     schools are the best place to teach it, and then
     transferable to society, he is the model, 

Audience: policy makers and politicians, What are we learning:
     new law, new transition, other educators, is this public? 
     would parents have seen this? newspapers? They were
     published. 

Who is the author and what is relation to subj: sec of ed,
     creator

Position taken: another piece of commonness for the nation.

     making more money, so one or two could stay in sch without
     taking from family funds.  This is for second or third
     generation imm as they became setled. Not for new imm.  hs
     pics show them having fun, a leisure class is evolving.
     Colleges were moving from acad to social networking,
     athletics begins to rise.  W could not handle hs so W were
     in elem sch.

How does Dewey's idea fit into this?
Dewey: began as philosopher, interest in educ how we find
     knowledge acquire it; 1890 head of phil, psych, and pedagogy
     or dept of ed, school of ed.  1904 came to TC practical ed,
     child centered pedagogy, transforming society training
     practically educated children then you could transform
     society thereby eliminating society's ills.  Dewey p34
     experiential education, child centered, child understanding,
     should be models of democracy and for democ.  
How can this work in a sch in 1910? In common lang: new imm who
     teaches them.  They had to laugh at them.  Can't be done in
     a large system with grades, large classes... He is in
     conflict with success of training for business, schools run
     like business is contrary to Dewey.  His ideas are radical.
     Dewey more Jeffersonian, but too radical. Dewey comes from
     his time: socialism, Marx, Descartes, and comes up against
     the status quo of the time.  a man in the wrong time.  Value
     of educ in America as a whole.  Business dev leisure class,
     so why not fix if it ain't broke.  legalized slavery is the
     model and then Dewey comes along with a democracy thing.  
In context of his time: is it about adequacy or excellence.

To BT Washington & DuBois:

Lynching reaches high, race riots, 1896 Plessy v Ferguson, these
     2 blacks are lightening rods of controversy
Which of these two is more like Dewey?

BTWash was born a slave. attended a free school taught by a
     Northern black went to Hampton and then founded Tuskegee
     with help of whites philanthropists _Up From Slavery_

DuBois from a Northern free family grew up in New Bedford went to
     Fisk in Tenn a black sch, because he could afford and could
     get into.  1st black to get PhD from Harvard.  1903 _Souls
     of Black Folks_ in which he criticizes BTWash. Taught at
     Tuskegee.

Both had same goal to educ blacks. 
In BTWash peice read between the lines.  Highest number of
     lynchings, not time to do black power thing.

DuBois's knows from elitism.  He was one of the 1/10th, he was
     separate from his own race.

how does this fit between Dewey and DuBois?  How does friction
between BTWash and DuBois

Dewey and factory model?
How much of these things are we still living with?

Now the next and last paper:
Don't editorialize.
