Women and Education Issue Date: 03-19-2017

Cool Spots image Did you know that colleges have not always admitted women? The History of Women and Education, nwhm.org/online-exhibits/education/1700s_1.htm, is a narrative of the U.S. educational system from Colonial Education until today. The 19th century was a period of great change for women in secondary education, sparked in part by the need for more teachers. The growth in school systems led to a shortage of 30,000 teachers in the 1830s, and most teachers at that time were men. Although it was initially faced with skepticisim, the solution to this issue was to hire women as teachers. Read about those who worked tirelessly to pioneer this effort as you examine the related timeline of events.
