Best Answer

Horace Mann of Massachusetts took lead in education reform. To Mann, public financing of education was essential for democracy to work. He said:

"If we do not prepare children to be good citizens; if we do not enrich their minds with knowledge... then our republic must go down to destruction as others have gone before it."

After becoming head of the state board of education in 1837, Mann convinced Massachusetts to improve its public school system. It created colleges to trainteachers, raised the salaries of the teachers, and lengthened the school year.
