Item Description:Begun by Horace Mann, secretary of the Massachusetts Board of Education, this semimonthly was one of the most important education journals of its time. Devoted to the cause of education, it proposed to improve the "common" schools and other means of education, to report on laws relating to schools and on the proceedings of the Massachusetts Board of Education as well as to explain the duties of parents and teachers, and address children on good behavior. Contents included essays and articles on Boston schools, children, teaching, books, and other education-related subjects and it also published letters, biographical material, anecdotes, lessons in grammar and other subjects, and extracts from various sources.
