Age of Jackson
Horace Mann started a school to train teachers. He was the leading voice for education reform and wanted to improve children's education. Mann served in the Massachusetts House of Representatives before appointed as the first secretary of education for Massachusetts in 1837. He was also a former lawyer and state legislator. During the education reform, Mann started the idea of public education, doubled state school budget, improved salaries for teachers, made the school year longer and founded the first school for teacher training. Later, he went on to the U.S House of Representatives.
This impacted schools by having trained teachers who worked full time. Schools spread through the country so more children could have an education. Furthermore, children with different backgrounds can go to school instead of just kids from wealthy families.

Immigrants and Nativist Response
Immigrants and Nativist
The Irish and Germans were coming to America because they had problems at home like they couldn’t grow food and was getting sick and dying from starvation of diseases, and some just think that they could have more opportunities in America. The nativist didn’t want them to immigrate because most of the nativist were protestant and they didn’t want Catholics to come to America.
Donald Trump has made immigrants speak out this last year and has made immigration a huge subject. More and more immigrants rant about their rights in this country and some nativist agree with this and some don't. Some people want to keep this country want to keep the U.S clear of immigrants.
These two situations are both similar to each other because the Nativist have a problem with the immigrants.
