William asks…

What do you think of this essay?

It is about Horace Mann. The first paragraph was supposed to be about what he did, and the second was about how he changed my life.

Horace Mann, who lived from 1796 to 1859, was a great guy who did a lot of important stuff for the public education system. Just what exactly did he do? Well, for starters, he accepted the position of First Secretary of the State Board of Education in Massachusetts. He campaigned for education, established schools for teacher’s training, established school district libraries, and won financial backing for public education. He was crucial to the actual establishment of the first Normal Schools in Massachusetts. Horace Mann hoped that by bringing all children, of all classes together, they could have a common learning experience. This would also give an opportunity to the less fortunate to advance in the social scale and education would “equalize the conditions of men”.

And how exactly did Horace Mann impact society today? Just think about what the education system would be like without him! Teachers would have very little training, there would be kids sitting at home, not going to school at all, and people would give little thought to the finances required for a proper school to work. The kids who didn’t go to school would remain ignorant about simple things such as mathematics and reading for the rest of their lives, and would let many opportunities pass, instead of making an effort to grab them and make their dreams a reality. People who ended up becoming important inventors, scientists and doctors could have lived their lives without giving it a second though. Teachers wouldn’t be as trained as they are now, and would not be able to teach the material required for kids to get into good universities, or land successful jobs. People would need to find other ways of making money, and this could possibly result in the crime rate rising, from things like smuggling and illegal trading. All in all, even though school does get frustrating sometimes, I am very thankful that Horace Mann stood up for education, and made the system what it is today.

John answers:

You have a problem from the very beginning..”did a lot of important stuff” instead say he did many important things..or he supported the education system in many different ways…
Get a parent to read over your essay and point out all these things..your content is good..your wording is not so good…i know writing papers can be not putting you down..i have the same problems.

2 Idealists believe that U.S. foreign policy should be associated with
1 defense of human rights. {i picked this one}
2 elimination of despots, tyrants, and oligarchs.
3 profitable trade.
4 successful wars

3 Which of the following powers does the President hold?

2 appointing officials
3 lobbying

1 Commander in Chief
2 constitutionality coordinator {this is the one i picked}
3 party leader
4 chief of state

5 Which of the following is NOT a key role of Congress?
1 provide services to constituents {this is the one i picked}
2 enact laws
3 determine constitutionality of laws
4 oversee government agencies

John answers:

The first 3 questions are correct.

The fourth should be (3). The party leader. An example of this is President Obama is not the Democratic National Party Leader. Also, if they are talking about the party leaders in Congress, they are talking about Senators and Congressmen, not the President.

The fifth should be (3). The Judicial Branch determines the constitutionality of laws.

Betty asks…

Are the Spanish and French jealous of the Brits and Dutch…because our Empires were far more successful?

The Spanish and French Empires were ruled by Kings with Absolute authority, they were not liberal and most of their income went to the Royal Family.
Where as the Britain and the Netherlands were democratic countries before they even established an Empire. Dutch banking systems, alongside Britains liberal approach to the Empire…led to Globalisation and free trade

If you look at South America, take Mexico for example… and then Look at the USA and Canada, there is a reason why the USA and Canada have larger economies and are far powerful. Look at India, a rising superpower, without the British building the infrastructure there… India wouldn’t have a chance.
Obviously there are many former British countries such as Zimbabwe that are poor, but these problems occurred after the Brits left when civil wars broke out and dictators took over.

I am not excusing some of the terrible things that happened in the Empire, but mostly it was a democratic and liberal (liberal for it’s time). As well as a financial powerhouse, the first true global superpower. Historians all agree that Britain shaped the modern world… what has Spain or France ever done? except invade Morocco and fail miserably.
Rhiassa, I am a liberal… I definitely don’t live in the past, but I am a history geek and I like to know why things are the way they are today… just wondering what the Spaniards and French think of our successful Empires over their failing ones.
KD you are wrong, the British empire was very different to the other Empires… as explained in the additional details.

John answers:

Jealous of the British? Maybe

Of the Dutch? LOL, ya right.

India was rich before the British and other Europeans stole the goods from there. The Spanish had heavy influence in South and Latin America while the French had heavy influence in the Midwest part of the US and in Canada.

Also, the US became powerful after we kicked the British out. Jealous of the British? Maybe, jealous of the Dutch? No, French and Spanish were far more powerful than the Dutch.
