Abstract: This study attempts to give both the origin and development of a part of the movement for city schools. The factors that aided in this movement, such as private donations, the Peabody fund, school laws and the levying of special taxes for schools in certain districts demonstrate the fact that the deep thinkers and planners of the day would let no opposing forces overwhelm them. As an illustration of this we have the interesting history of the Greensboro schools--the first public graded school system in North Carolina.
