Horace MannBy: Rachel Woodall



Antioch College

Horace Mann, often called the Father of the Common School, strongly believed that political stability and social harmony depended upon a certain level of education that was available and provided to all people regardless of race or religion. He helped establish state-sponsored teacher training and Common Schools. His dedication to his beliefs led him to resign from a promising legal and political career to accept an 11 year post as the first Secretaryship of the newly established Massachusetts State Board of Education. Even today his fundamental six ideas are the base of tax-funded public education.
