4. E DUCATION AS A P ROFESSIONAL FED 300 Foundation of Education
E ARLY D AME S CHOOL The school run by women in that community Families and communities sometimes provide schooling for their children at inexpensive Dame school. The Dame School is run by women in that area to teach rudimentary skills of reading, writing, and calculating. For some children, particularly girls, this was the only formal education they received. During 17 th century, the religious education prevailing, like Calvinism. Its staunch theology insisted that children are inherently evil and in need of strict discipline at home and at school.
E DUCATIONAL REFORM Education reform to include secular content By the 19 th century, the rigid belief of Orthodox Calvinism began to soften, and Americans adopted more rational and humanistic views. People challenged the traditional educational methods and demand secular (nonreligious) curricula. Philosophers like Henry David Thoreau, Bronson Alcott, and Ralph Waldo Emerson advocated radical reform of education. They said that education is stifling (White only education). Education should be as broad as man…. The immigration must be addressed.
I NDUSTRY AFFECTED EDUCATION Industrialization is the Northeast shaped the character of the Nation in the late 18 th and early 19 th centuries. Factories grew larger and more complex, roads and shipping improved and transportation costs decreased. People distribute goods to the mass markets. Engineering developed fast in the Northeast coast. Water-powered factories and mills boomed. More iron and coal produced. Entrepreneurs made a lot of manufacturers. Patent law started. Unlike the Northeast people, the South remained rural and dependent on agriculture for its economic well-being. As the cotton gin was invented, the cotton yield 50 times as much as before from 10,000 bales to 50,000 bales yearly in Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana.
E DUCATION FOR W OMEN The Latin school and the English Language Academy denied women’s enrollment. In 1821, the pioneers for women education, like Emma Willard, opened the first women’s school in Troy, New York to teach geography, science, domestic skills, music and other courses to women. Late, there are other women’s schools came into being. Until then, the education for women of not wealthy families was mainly informal, in the home and short-live as compared to the education for men.
E DUCATION FOR DISABILITIES The education for people with mental or physical disabilities were confined or forgotten in 16 th and 18 th centuries. Clergymen and physicians were among the leaders providing care and training for people with disabilities. The first special education school in the U.S. was built in Syracuse, New York in 1854.
Anne Sullivan in 1887 Anne Sullivan was teaching Helen Keller in 1888
Helen Adams Keller was born on 27 June 1880 on a plantation called Ivy Green, in Tuscumbia, Alabama. Helen Keller was an American lecturer, author, and activist. Deaf and blind since early childhood, and living in an era where most individuals similarly afflicted were consigned to an asylum, Helen Keller overcame her disabilities with the aide of mentor Anne Sullivan and rose to international renown. Keller used her fame to educate others about the blind and to raise funds for related charities. But her commitment to social change was extensive. She was a personal friend of controversial birth control advocate Margaret Sanger, donated money to the NAACP in 1916, and was a founding member of the ACLU.Anne SullivanMargaret Sanger NAACPACLU
