The type of education that children received in frontier schools was limited. The schools taught basic skills in reading, writing, and arithmetic. Teachers also usually stressed manners and good behavior. Because children were needed to help in the fields, schools were open for a few months a year. Most students did not obtain more than an eighth-grade level of education at best, and many never graduated. There were no laws requiring students to go to school during this era.
