Hide Profile

The Pennsylvania Society for the Promotion of Public Economy had a committee devoted to public schools in the mid-1810s, and the Pennsylvania Society for the Promotion of Public Schools was founded in Philadelphia in 1827. The society promoted high-quality education for all Pennsylvania children, including those too poor to afford tuition. The society published reports, responded to inquiries about hiring teachers, and petitioned the state legislature for reform.
