History

History

  • 19th century educators had little knowledge of the nature and extend of individual differences or of the stages of human development.

  • Education was primarily for middle and upper class boys. Lower class boys and girls were taught basic literacy skills so they could read the bible and recite religious catechisms.

  • Horance Mann (1796-1859) championed the common school movement which lead to the free-public, locally controlled elementary schools of today.

  • Ernest Boyer’s book The Basic School Community for Learning, highlighted individual differences, flexibility and continuity in learning as significant curriculum criterion.

“The Early Years are transcendentally the most important, and if this nation wishes ultimately to achieve excellence we will give greater priority and attention to the early years and start affirming elementary teachers instead of college professors as the centerpiece for learning.”
