Excerpt from The Massachusetts System of Common Schools: Being an Enlarged and Revised Edition of the Tenth Annual Report of the First Secretary of the Massachusetts Board of Education
To write a History of Popular Education in Massachusetts would be a work of great interest,... and of little difficulty. Such a history, however, seems not to have been contemplated, and, therefore, would not be warranted, by those Resolves of the Legislature under which the following pages are prepared. The Resolves provide only for the republication of so much of his [the late Secretary's] Tenth Annual Report, as, with the requisite additions and alterations, Will exhibit a just and correct View of the Common School system of Massachusetts, and the provisions of law relating to it. An adequate idea of this system, however, can hardly be obtained without a brief reference to its origin, and to those great fundamental principles, which its authors and supporters seem rather to have tacitly assumed than to have fully expounded.
