Who invented school?
Transcript of Who invented school?
There's something I want to know.
I've been wondering for a while.
Yukozimo.com says something along the lines of, the first school system was patented by a man named Horace Mann, in 1837. That led to educational historians calling him the "Father of the Common School Movement". (http://invention.yukozimo.com/who-invented-schools/ )
Well, then who invented it?
Whoinventedit.net talks about how the Byzantines could be the real creators of the school system. They wanted more specific subjects to learn at a time, like math, language, history, etc. (http://www.whoinventedit.net/who-invented-school.html)
That same source talks about the fact that while he was the one who patented it, he wasn't the one who came up with the idea of sitting in a classroom learning. He didn't come up with the idea for children to be kept in a building together. He just patented the idea of having what we call Public School. (http://invention.yukozimo.com/who-invented-schools/)
Yukozimo.com also talks about how the first actual school building was created by a man named Harry P. School in the year 1369. Except, Harry School's school was nothing like our schools. Rather than a place of education, it was a place of punishment to leave bad children. Eventually, adults were employed and slowly, it became the place of learning it is today.
