Education

Whilst, therefore, our pioneers brought to their forest homes a familiar acquaintance with the practical affairs of life, they also imported the elements of a grand civilization. They started in their new career with the settled purpose of erecting their educational institutions upon a high standard of excellence. The organic law and the formative statutes of the infant state all bear the impress of that high purpose. We are far from asserting that the views and plans incorporated into our present school and university systems were originated by the pioneers. The writer of this article well knows that they were gleaned from many sources. The leading ideas not only date back to " the old Bay State," and permeate the chronicles of New England, but they bear the ear-marks of a Prussian origin. At the same time, the various systems thus consulted were wanting in unity of design and were sadly deficient in their connecting links.
