About this item

In Schooling in the Antebellum Gulf South, Sarah L. Hyde analyzes educational development in the Gulf South before the Civil War, revealing not only a thriving private and public education system, but also offering insight into the worldview and aspirations of the people inhabiting the region. While historians have tended to emphasize that much of antebellum South had no public school system and offered education only to elites in private institutions, Hyde’s work suggests a different pattern of development in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, where citizens actually worked to extend schooling across the region. As a result, students learned in a variety of different settings – within their own homes taught by a family member or hired tutor, at private or parochial schools and in public free schools. Regardless of the venue, Hyde shows that the ubiquity of learning in the region proves how highly southerners valued education.
