Horace Mann’s “common schools” were the precursors for today’s public schools. Mann was responsible for establishing the first teacher training facilities. Religious and moral values were emphasized in American schools through the use of texts such as the New England Primer and McGuffey Readers. The Progressive Education Movement also impacted schools, supported by John Dewey.
