On May 4, 1776, both houses of the General Assembly renounced the colony’s allegiance to Great Britain—a full two months before the rest of the colonies followed suit on July 4.

Horace Mann (1796)

Mann overcame limited early education to enter law and politics. He became secretary of Massachusetts’ new board of education in 1837, at a time when the public school system was in poor condition. In his 12 years there, he established high schools, enhanced teacher training and pay, curbed child labor, and improved facilities and equipment. He fought for free, nonsectarian, universal schooling, greatly advancing education in the US.

Quote of the Day:
Richard le Gallienne

They are the good Samaritans that find us robbed of all our dreams by the roadside of life, bleeding and weeping and desolate; and such is their skill and wealth and goodness of heart, that they not only heal up our wounds, but restore to us the lost property of our dreams. More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch
