Post Taught by clergy-- history Link
I read somewhere that the vast majority of schools around 1900 were church schools and that most children were taught by clergy.

Do we have any amateur historians in here that delve into this topic (or anything besides the Civil War?) I just wonder how that worked out in a practical way. Did a local pastor of a church preach on Sunday and spend all week with a room full of children? Were there special ordained ministers who taught classes? Or was it the case that pastors were sort of like board members or principals who oversaw what teachers taught in small Christian schools?

100 years or so ago, judges seemed to have a bit of moral common sense and there was some 'fear of God' in the culture. The school system shifted to tax supported government schools, then prayer was taken out of schools. Television emerged and began to influence the thinking of the people. The youth had a 'sexual revolution', abortion was declared legal by the Supreme Court. Now there is so called 'gay marriage.'
