Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to
indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.
At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the American educational system was
desperately in need of reform. Private schools existed, but only for the very rich. There
were very few public schools because of the strong sentiment that children who would
grow up to be laborers should not waste their time on education but should instead
prepare themselves for their lifes work. It was in the face of this public sentiment that
educational reformers set about their task. Horace Mann, probably the most famous of the
reformers, felt that there was no excuse in a republic for any citizen to be uneducated. As
Superintendent of Education in the state of Massachusetts from 1837 to 1848, he initiated
various changes, which were soon matched in other school districts around the country. He
extended the school year from five to six months and improved the quality of teachers by
instituting teacher education and raising teacher salaries. Although these changes did not
bring about a sudden improvement in the educational system, they at least increased public
awareness as to the need for a further strengthening of the system.
