Education started when? education

127

If you mean public education, a system of schools funded by the government (through the sale of public land) started with the Land Ordinance of 1785.  By dividing new western lands into 36 square mile townships, the government could organize land distribution and sales and keep it out of the hands of profiteers.

When they did this, they set aside the 16th square mile of every township for public education, and the sale of that land created revenue for every township to set up a public school.

In the 1840's, Horace Mann reformed education and made it mandatory to attend until the 4th grade, and adopted nationwide standards for both teachers and students.
