What American education was like 100 years ago

Education has and continues to play an essential role in American society, and the first Department of Education—also known as Office of Education or Bureau of Education—was established in 1867 to document and promote the “condition and progress of education” in the United States.

In the early days of American history, educational attainment was seen as less of a priority than it is today. Child labor laws had not yet gone into effect, and many children were required to work, help out on the family farm, or contribute in other ways to the home. As time passed, however, education became increasingly important as a means of getting ahead financially and establishing oneself as a productive member of society.

To understand how American education has evolved over the last century, Stacker investigated historical education data and took a deep dive into a 1993 National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) report that

It is almost 30 years since Australia last slid into recession, a now distant time when no one had heard of the internet and the Property Council had just appointed a young researcher called Scott Morrison.

Fast-forward three decades and the path out of recession does not look so simple with unemployment climbing to more than 1 million. One expert says “nobody is safe” from redundancy.

The combination of a recession and the coronavirus lockdown laid over the top poses a profound economic challenge for the future labour market.

Low-hanging fruit such as productivity improvements and the transition to a service-based, global-facing economy have

Bhubaneswar: Four years ago, as the clamour for skill development in India was growing, Odisha was nowhere on the map.

The previous year, 2015, the Narendra Modi government at the Centre had launched the Skill India mission to train over 40 crore people by 2022. But in the eastern state, the skilling sector was utterly neglected — young people steered away from the government-run Industrial Training Institutes or ITIs because of the uninspiring atmosphere and obsolete curriculum.

Cut to 2020, and the difference is stark. Not only are the 49 government-run ITIs in Odisha chock full of enthusiastic young men and women, 11 of them have even managed to be ranked in the top 100 ITIs’ list drawn up by the Union Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, which evaluated over 10,600 government and private ITIs on 27 parameters.

Odisha’s ITI campuses now sport a
