Hull-HouseFounded in 1889 in Chicago offered medical care, child care and legal aid while it also provided classes for immigrants to learn English, vocational skills, music, art and drama.

"America's future will be determined by the home and the school. The child becomes largely what he is taught; hence we must watch what we teach, and how we live." -- Jane Addams


TodayThe Hull-House is still around to support people, which is her biggest legacy. Even though, her life focused on the development of individuals, her ideas continue to influence social, political and economic reform in the United States as well as internationally because she was so involved. Settlement houses were her biggest influence, still around today, related to education.

CommentaryAddams had a very high impact on her time of educational reformation and the creation of education overall. She began a "school" that helped others in multiple settings depending on the person which encouraged those people to advance in their lives, that of which is important. Her influences have carried into today and being that she was involved in so many active groups and peace making, she was a greatly appreciated person and just focused on helping others in the way of education. Overall, I think she made a large impact on education and the education system from the development of the settlement house.

First American woman awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1931
