Chapter 5 Samantha Fasnacht Notes Responses 1. The Southern colonies stayed more like England in the education policies than the other colonies did. (p. 163) This can still be seen today in some ways. For example, most private school in the South tend to be religiously- affiliated. 2. Vouchers allow students to attend religious private schools using government funding. (p. 166) I don’t understand how this can be constitutional. It seems to be a direct violation of the separation of church and state, even if it helps children receive a better education. 3. The common school movement tried to make it so that all US children could attend school. (p. 171) Today all children in the US are required to attend school from ages 5 to 16 and most attend public schools. 4. Students in grades 7, 8, and 9 can attend junior high schools. (p. 177) I went to a K-8 school, a middle school, and then a high school for 7 th , 8 th , and 9 th grades. I think a junior high school would have made more sense.
