Elizabeth Sutka 31 October 2011 SOC 335 – A Chapter 13 1. Which two of the reform movements was the most sociological? Why? I think that one of the most sociological movements was the public school movement. Horace Mann pushed for schools to be provided without charge or religious teaching. He came up with the idea for tax dollars to pay for public education. This is sociological because it takes away financial and socioeconomic status from education, so that it does not limit who can benefit from it. In class we talk about equality of education and different ways of providing quality education to students regardless of their socioeconomic status. However, when Mann’s movement started, there wasn’t any equality and that is why this movement was so important. This movement also put education in a whole new category as a major system. With education as a system on the same playing field as government and the economy, the importance of it was finally recognized.
