Reform movements of the Progressive Era changed the importance of America in every other aspect of life. Starting from birth control reforms to government reform and many others who’d brought a new wave of prosperity in this country. I would like to share my views about the Educational reforms of progressive era, because the progressives of that time worked really hard to reform and rejuvenate the school, college at council level. The most important fact of this era was the expansion in number of schools and student, especially in the fast flourishing metropolitan cities. Furthermore in the late 19th century most southern children especially living in rural areas received more than an elementary education. The other remarkable facts of that
The Second Great Awakening, beginning in about 1790, influenced a reform movement that encouraged mandatory, free, public education. In 1805, the New York Public School Society was created by wealthy businessmen and was intended to provide education for poor children. In 1817, a town meeting in Boston, Massachusetts called for establishment of free public primary schools. Many wage earners opposed this proposal. Josiah Quincy, mayor of Boston, supported the idea that education should be a priority by saying, “(By) 1820, an English classical school is established, having for its object to enable the mercantile and mechanical classes to obtain an education adapted for those children whom their parents wished to qualify for active life, and thus
During the antebellum period of the United States, different policies and political agendas were laid out to create a country that aspired to be better than the one from which it claimed its independence. The discussion of education began then, in hopes to create a more nationalistic society and to instill individual thought so that tyranny would never be able to take control. Education for who though, is where things began to get a little blurry. Most education in this time period began as disorganized and personal. Studying abroad was becoming unpatriotic—why send your children to other countries, when they could stay in the States so that they could learn to love their own country. So education became more domestic, but also more expensive.
In the 1800s America changed in many different areas. The education system improved vastly after having schools with poor education that teach little and schools that make it hard for the poor to go to. American art changed greatly when America developed their own style and many books were written that are famous today like Moby-Dick. A change in women’s rights occurred with many changes that pushed equality at the time.
In the colonial days of the United States, most children did not attend school. Instead, they worked on farms or learned a craft. Wealthy children may have attended private schools or had tutors, but children from poorer families did not have such opportunities.
After being victims of numerous restrictive laws placed on them by the British, many colonists wanted to break free from the English. As a result, the colonists declared war on the British. When the fighting concluded, the newly formed nation was experiencing a time of change. Laws and acts coming from the time period would serve as a precedent and model for much of the actions and characteristics of America. Between the years 1754 and 1812, the United States was evolving into a strong and developed nation.By the start of the Revolutionary War, most Americans were educated just enough to read the newspaper and the Bible, and do their taxes. Aware of this issue, Thomas Jefferson proposed a change. Jefferson believed that the survival of democracy
After reading education in the U.S. from 1770-1900, I learned that Horace Mann established a new system for public schools called "common schools", in which all children (poor or rich) were provided a common body of knowledge that would allow them to have a equal chance in life. Also, I learned that due to the increase of immigrants arriving to Europe, religion (Catholic v.s. Protestant) became a controversial issue in the common schools. After reading education in the U.S. from 1900-1950, I learned that due to limited amount of space in the classroom, many students had to attend school part-time. Second, I learned that schools in the early 1900s began to use progressive techniques in the classrooms instead of following the three R 's, where
America wanted to civilize them from the issues that is occurring. According to Document 4, “America is trying to show how the Filipinos that America can make their “dreams” come true erasing their problems with freedom, education, and justice.” The Filipinos wanted the independence, making US leader seizing the opportunity to control the Philippines by showing pull factors. United States didn’t really care about the issues going on in the Philippines. Controlling Philippines allows the United States a mid pacific port for trade purists. American wanted to control the Philippines government to get closer to China for trading. Another interest is access to trading. According to Document 1, “Process of three hundred years of superstition in religion, dishonesty in dealing, disorder in habits of industry, and cruelty, caprice, and corruption in government. It is barely possible that 1,000 men in all archipelago are capable of self-government.” US President, McKinley believed they couldn’t govern themselves against other nations. Believing that US was required to civilize people by introducing them to American style of
In order to keep power equally, the federal government had to come up with a compromise, of course, as we now know it wasn’t going to be so easy, in fact, It took many years and many political debates to come up with a compromise. The compromise would then split the powers in the National Government and the State Government. As they would describe it, the National Government had enumerated powers, the State Government had Reserved power and the two Governments combined had Concurrent Powers.
The primary tenets of education Colonial America, were first and foremost, to know God through reading His Word, followed by writing and arithmetic. The importance of the Christian Biblical Worldview were publicized through the establishment of the Massachusetts Law of 1642, which required that parents or guardians educate their children in principles of religion and the capital laws of the commonwealth.
Many people particularly in Western countries use fork, spoon and knife when eating while in Eastern countries such as China, Japan, and Korea use chopsticks. In the Philippines, aside from using the spoon and fork people also use their bare hands while putting up their foot on the chair. This gesture of Filipinos is an example of nonverbal communication specifically kinesics. Merriam Webster 's Dictionary and other references defines kinesics as a study of body movements for it came from the word kinesis which means movement.
There is a third reason which is the Most important reason, is to get a great picture of the cultural diversity of the United States of America. Knowledge of others, their cultures, their sciences and way of life, is useful for learning about a new culture. Some cultures have good qualities and bad recipes, or perhaps do not fit the nature of our lives. For example, my presence in America has made me learn a lot of American cultures that if I find them in my country and may be useful to me or in raising my children such as opening the door to the person walks behind me, honestly I like this behavior which I miss this in my country. In general, the idea of quoting the culture that suits our societies may help us to develop from the reality of our lives. so, getting a job like a teacher in American schools, it increases my culture and quotes a lot of approaches that may be helpful to me in developing education in my
We belong in a time where the world goes through constant changes. Life today is so fast-paced and dynamic that we sometimes knowingly ignore what 's happening around us since it may instantly change anyway. The Philippines specifically, have gone through great changes in the past several years. These changes have rooted from problems that made it impossible for us to develop and progress as a country. It is perhaps opportunely that our government is able to push through boundaries and traditions to come up with resolutions and better policies/laws.
