Abstract: The subject of this essay was selected because of its close connection with the general history of the state. The first topic selected was the "Contribution of Quakers to Education in North Carolina." This topic, however, had been fully covered by Zora Klain in a doctor's dissertation. The purposes of this study, apart from being required for the master’s degree, are: to trace the growing "educational conscience" of the state to 1850, to show how the various protestant denominations took care of the situation until the state realized its obligation in the matter of education, and to give some idea of the courses of study used before 1850, The writer hopes the study on educational practice will help him as a public school teacher by giving an insight into educational history.
