Horace Mann, a pioneer in Public Education in America, was born on May 4, 1796, in Franklin, Massachusetts. He entered the Massachusetts legislature in 1827 and served there for ten years, first as representative and then senator.In 1837, he was secretary to the newly created Massachusetts Board of Education. He founded the "normal school" system in Massachusetts, which developed better prepared teachers.From 1848 to 1853, Mann served in Congress, taking the seat left empty upon the death of John Quincy Adams. He also spoke on the subject of Henry Clay's compromise resolutions in 1850. In a speech that he gave on February 15 of that year, he foreshadowed many of the arguments that Lincoln would use in the Lincoln-Douglas Debates of 1858.Afterwards, he undertook the presidency of the newly established Antioch College in Ohio, in which capacity he served almost until his death on August 2, 1859.Horace Mann campaigned effectively for the principle that every child should be provided with an education at public expense. His insistence on the nonsectarian nature of that education put him at odds with many church leaders, who objected to the "godless" education that Mann recommended.

    In my opinion, you need to rest more often, you are very much earned.

    It's amazing how you, with a fairly calm style in terms of blog design, were able to put everything together so competently. Here the text, and the table of contents and links and navigation are cool. I've started making design two times, but I have never been able to come up with an idea. If you ever decide to do charity work and put your template in free access, then I will be the first to download it, only the tags are not fashionable yet. saw schaz spinning already. See you in the blogosphere

    I think mistakes are made. Write to me in PM, it talks to you.

    Well, actually, a lot of what you write is not quite like that ... Well, okay, it doesn't matter
