Colonial[ edit ] In Colonial America elementary education was widespread in New England, but limited elsewhere.
New England Puritans believed it was necessary to study the Bible, so boys and girls were taught to read at an early age. It was also required that each town pay for a primary school. About 10 percent enjoyed secondary schooling.
Few girls attended formal schools, but most were able to get some education at home or at so-called "Dame schools" where women taught basic reading and writing skills in their own houses. There was no higher education for women.
It was optional and some towns proved reluctant. Northampton, Massachusetts, for example, was a late adopter because it had many rich families who dominated the political and social structures and they did not want to pay taxes to aid poor families.
Northampton assessed taxes on all households, rather than only on those with children, and used the funds to support a grammar school to prepare boys for college.
Not until after did Northampton educate girls with public money. In contrast, the town of Sutton, Massachusetts, was diverse in terms of social leadership and religion at an early point in its history.
Sutton paid for its schools by means of taxes on households with children only, thereby creating an active constituency in favor of universal education for both boys and girls.
School taught both, but in places without schools reading was mainly taught to boys and also a few privileged girls. Men handled worldly affairs and needed to read and write. Girls only needed to read especially religious materials.
This educational disparity between reading and writing explains why the colonial women often could read, but could not write and could not sign their names—they used an "X". Most parents either home schooled their children using peripatetic tutors or sent them to small local private schools.
Women's rights organizations focused on adjusting and increasing women's place in the public arena by arguing that the only fundamental differences between women and men were socially constructed ones, and thus women should be offered the same extensive and practical education that were offered to men.

Education showed women how to exercise their civic responsibilities, and it showed them the importance of the vote. At this point in history, a college major was expected to be a practical one.
As difficult financial times neared, needing to justify college expenses became very real for women and their families.
A study in that surveyed nearly sixteen-hundred woman PhD recipients concluded that seventy percent required grants, scholarships, and fellowships in order to cover the expense associated with earning a higher degree. Despite the financial support, the majority of these women were required to save money for years before pursuing their degrees because the aid was never enough.
Despite these disadvantages, the s marked the peak of woman PhD earners. These degrees varied in fields and began to legitimize fields for women that were once off-limits. Both men and women were forced to find ways of supporting their education at this period of time.
To help lessen the financial burden faced by families trying to educate their children, the National Youth Administration was created by the United States Government. Between andthe NYA spent nearly 93 million dollars providing financial assistance.
As the number of college graduates increased, those who were displaced during the Great Depression had to compete with a younger and more-educated group of people.Feza Schools Boys Girls International. News not found No news content feeds found!
