Girls learned traditional roles of Victorian women: cooking, sewing, childcare, and cleaning
Shift from academics to industry
Encourage better understanding of money
"Outgoing" Programs - Students sent to live with middle-class families
Typically sent to farming families, although some were sent to cities
Experience was seen as positive for both the student and host family Civilization or Extinction
Indian question
Civilization is destined to triumph over savagery
Philanthropist organizations strive to civilize the savages
Offer civilization in exchange for land
Civilization through Education
John Oberly's three educational objectives
Teach the Indian how to work
Teach him about property rights
Make the Indian a citizen and enfranchise him
Taught native children elementary education, such as math and science followed by Christianity
Changing of an Era
As much as reformers thought they were and wanted to help the Natives they still preferred "civilized" life to "savage" life

Civilized life will therefore always dominate savage life
Civilized life was no longer going to dominate savagery through brute force but assimilate it
