Abstract: The growth of American colleges and universities has been marked by a lack of unity. Each college and university has manifested its individualism in organization, administration and curricula. Concerning the growth of the American teachers college, or the normal school, as it was first called, Pangburn makes the following comment: The American Normal school grew up in response to a gradually increasing recognition on the part of the public that some means of preparing teachers was needed in order to insure the fulfillment of the purpose for which the schools were created. As an outgrowth of public education, the normal school and its successor, the teachers college, have been subject to the same conditions that have operated to produce the school system of to-day. Underlying and conditioning the development of the teacher-training institution and the schools which it served is the decentralization of control of education that is characteristic of the American system of government. 1
