    Education
    Teachings
    - Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic
    (Everyone was required to at the least know how to read to be able to read the Bible)
    - Everything was memorized and recited {http://www.sc.edu/library/spcoll/kidlit/kidlit/alphbks.jpg}
    - There was no critical thinking, free expression, or thought
    - Outside of the Classroom
    Boys were taught farming skills
    Girls were taught to spin weave and sew
    This was meant to teach kids basic life skills
    - At Vocational Schools
    Boys were taught navigation, seafaring, surveying, shipbuilding, mathematics, accounting, and business
    Girls were taught the "female arts", piano, voice, French, dancing, needlework, and painting
    Teachers(Schoolmasters)
    - The majority of teachers were male
    - Very few women at this time went into teaching
    - They were extremely poor
    - They were19 or 20-year old Harvard graduates
    - In many cases children were instead homeschooled by their parents or neighbor's parents
    PUNISHMENT
    - Thump on the back of the wrist
    - Slap with the ruler on palm of hand
    - Suspension if parents failed to pay school tuition
    Classes
    - There was no real structure in these first schools
    - There was no set time teachers would teach certain subjects, hence they had no schedule
    - They taught by personal preference
    - There were no grades for children of different ages
    Students of all different ages were put in one class, youngest in the front to oldest in the back
    It was common for older kids to drop out
    Thus the class was shaped in a triangle from front to back decreasing by age
    - They also did not have a schedule for the entire school year
    Classes were held year round
    They had rare and short vacations
    {http://www.nd.edu/~rbarger/www7/pur17.jpg}
    Types of Schools
    - Types of schools were based on the size of the town
    If it held 50 families or less they only had a reading school
    If it held 100 families or more they had a grammar school that they attended for 7 years to prepare them for college
    - The number of students in grammar schools and colleges were never very large because not many families could afford to send them to both
    - There were also Vocational schools where students went to learn labor skills of all sorts
    - School dames were held in rented rooms or meetings houses in which women would teach their children and those of others 2-3 years old
    - The most common grammar school of this time was Boston Latin school
    - Many of our best colleges were constructed at this time
    - 1638 they opened their first college, Harvard college
    - Soon after two other colleges that are now considered Ivy League schools were opened
    Yale in 1701
    Brown in 1764
    {http://www.gutenberg.org/files/22042/22042-h/images/fig66.jpg} School Conditions
    - Generally small, dark, poor quality drafty buildings
    - Within the building there was a central room, a foyer and a loft
    - Desks were made out of rough planks
    - Seats were backless filled with splinters and gummy resin
    - There was a fireplace that provided light and heat
    Levels of Education
    - There were no levels of education within each school itself
    again everyone was put together in one class and was taught the same thing
    The only difference in levels was when transitioning from grammar school to college
    - School was not organized enough at this time to have the divisions by grade as we do now
    {http://cdn-write.demandstudios.com/upload//1000/800/10/5/271815.jpg}
    Costs
    - Parents paid school tuition with wood for the fireplace in the winter when it was most needed
    - They also paid for school through government taxes
    - It was expensive to send children to both secondary school and college
    - Many parents could not afford to pay so much money
    Religions Role In Education
    - Religion was the base of all education during this period
    - They learned to read from the Bible
    - Learned to write by writing verses from the Bible
    - They were to memorize parts of the Bible
    - Thus learned to live exactly like the Bible taught/told them to
    Religions Affect on Students
    - Students attained and used the basic life skills needed
    - However many students did not follow in their religious teachings
    - Many were found doing things "unholy" and self-pleasing out of the classroom
    - Such behavior was frowned upon by their schoolmasters when they witnessed it
    Religion’s Importance in Education Then vs. Now
    - Religion is not implemented in the school curriculums of today
    There are religious education classes available to anyone who wants it but only at churches or other religious places
    - Religion is no longer required to be taught at schools; on the contrary other than in private schools it is not allowed
    It is now considered a choice to believe rather than a requirement
    Everyone has a right to their own beliefs without judgment or punishment
    - Therefore a student's education now is very different then before
    The Bible and other God related subjects are no longer the focus of one's education
    Presently there are so many different religions it is too controversial to teach in schools

    One of the most redundent witch tests were to tie a person to a cross and throw them into a lake. If they float they were a witch but if the drowned then they were human but would have already been dead.

    Finally the colonies minister took a stand against the salem witch trials. The girl accusers who had gone mad with power had accused the govenors wife, lady Phis of witchcraft.
    In response on october 29, governor Phis dissolved the court of over and termite. The governor then asked the general court to establish a superior court to finish the business.
    Juries ended up acquitting most of those accused. Only three were convicted but they were reprieved by the Governor.
