Wealthy families could afford schools or universities. Regular or poor families couldn't afford much education for their children. Also everything before the industrialization was done by hand was not as efficient as today's world of doing things. Education was not a standard thing to complete like in today's world

Education being developed

Education didn't actually change at all. The developments that America made had tremendous affects on the opportunities being opened up to people. Education was then encouraged because more jobs were needed and more knowledge was wanted. There soon was the need for more than just farmers and tobacco traders in America.

You had a heater, running water, and more upgrades to keep more students learning daily in the classroom.
