Transcript of Education in the 1930's

Education In the 1930's By: Barbara Bafford Schools in the !930's Since the land lost profit, the property taxes went down, and the schools lost money. Some school counties couldn't pay the teachers. Some teenagers had to quit school to work full-time on the farms. But the 1930's were a vibrant time for literature. One-Room Schools Many schools were one-room schools. And the children were lined up by grade in rows. So all the children were taught at the same time. John Dewey John Dewey was born on October 20, 1859. He graduated in 1879, then taught high school for 2 years. History of John Dewey He got his doctorate in 1884, then taught at the University of Michigan for 10 years.
Then in 1894 he wemt to the university of Chicago. Teaching Systems Around the 1930's, schools started to use the Dewey Decimal System to teach the students. After tranferring to many different schools, and resigning in 1930, he came up with the Dewey Decimal System. The Dewey Decimal System is the way you organize library books. The numbers on their spine. The Dewey Decimal System The Dewey Decimal systems was a break through in the teaching system, that all the schools eventually used. Segregated school systems In many places, especially the south, Segregation was law. Since African Americans were often the poorest people in the communities, their schools suffered because they were unable to raise funds for teacher salaries and maintenance. African Americans were also unrepresented on school borads, so they could not push for better funding for their schools. Nationally, more than 25% of the students were black, but they recieved only 12% of all education revenues and 3% of funds budgeted for school transportation.
