Teachers pervasively came from the ranks of ministers; and schools of higher education were founded to produce ministers of religion (Lubick, 1999).

Even in states that were undeveloped in terms of legislating schooling revealed the importance of religion and concern for the inculcation of values by controlling those who would 20 CHAPTER 2 teach.

Eventually, Jefferson was joined by Benjamin Rush and Noah Webster who all advocated what would become “common schools” (Butts, 1978; Madsen, 1974). These reformers envisioned schools that would transmit the principles of the new republicanism and serve as the medium through which governments could empower a virtuous citizenry to establish a new national social order.
