Summary
Biography of one of America's great educators and an early and effective champion of public schools. In addition to serving as Secretary of the Massachusetts State Board of Education, Mann served in both the Massachusetts House of Representatives (1827 to 1833) and the Massachusetts Senate (1834 to 1837). Acknowledged by educational historians as the Father of the Common School movement, Mann argued that universal public education was the most efficient way to create a productive, disciplined citizenry
