  • Ancient Persia, India and the Greeks had the first schools. The first book for a primary school was published in Iran in 1382. (bba Silvestri opened first school for the deaf in Italy in Rome 1784. Samuel Heinicke establishes first oral school for the deaf in the world in Germany in 1755. Charles Michel Abbe del' Epee establishes first free school for the deaf in the world, Paris, France.) ----- 2,400BC Babylonian baked clay tablets with arithmetic . There is a large body of mathematical tablets dating back to the old Babylonian period (1800 to 1500BC). Pythagoras, who died about 500BC, founded the "ythagorean School of thinkers."They created mathematical ways of representing and analysing musical harmony, and theories explaining sight mechanically: thinking of light as an emission of particles travelling in straight lines between the eye and the object seen. Mathematics, experiment, theory, aesthetics and religious speculation were all part of the Pythagorean imagination. They established the relationship of harmonious sound between families of notes produced by striking metal bars of different lengths, and the numbers that relate the lengths to the notes. from the net -------- There is some controversy regarding what is the world's oldest university between Takshashila, Nalanda and Al-Azhar University depending on the extent of this definition. Students at Takshashila University, founded in Taxila, Pakistan (a part of ancient India at the time) from around the 7th century BC, were given academic titles after graduating from one of its many courses. Nalanda University, founded in Bihar, India from around the 5th century BC, also gave academic titles to its graduates, while also offering post-graduate courses. Al-Azhar University, founded in Cairo, Egypt in the 9th century, offered a variety of post-graduate degrees, and is usually regarded as the first full-fledged university. The ancient cities of Takshashila, Nalanda, Vikramasila, and Kanchipura in ancient India were greatly reputed centres of learning in the east, with students from all over Asia. In particular, Nalanda was a famous center of Buddhist scholarship, and as such it attracted thousands of Buddhist scholars from China, East Asia, Central Asia and South-East Asia, while also attracting many students from Persia and the Middle East. The awarding of academic titles was not a custom of other educational institutions at the time but ancient institutions of higher learning also existed in China (Yuelu Academy), Greece (the Academy), and Persia (Academy of Gundishapur) The Academy, founded in 387 BC by the Greek philosopher Plato in the grove of Academos near Athens, taught its students philosophy, mathematics, and gymnastics, and is sometimes considered to resemble a university. Other Greek cities with notable educational institutions include Kos (the home of Hippocrates), which had a medical school, and Rhodes, which had philosophical schools. Another famous classical institution was the Museum and Library of Alexandria. Institutions bearing a resemblance to the modern university also existed in Persia and the Islamic world prior to Al-Azhar University, most notably the Academy of Gundishapur. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University
  • i want to kill the people who invented school!!!!!!!!!!!!1
  • Well he didn't invent "school" but this chappy is the father of public education as we now know it: Horace Mann Born May 4, 1796, in Franklin, Massachusetts, he was the father of American education, Horace Mann. He abandoned his rigid Calvinist upbringing for Unitarianism at age 23 and contrived to get his own education before becoming an educator himself. He created the first Board of Education in Massachusetts and recommended a comprehensive public school system, along secular lines, as a great cultural and national equalizer. Many thought this approach anti-Christian, but Mann wisely kept divisive doctrines outside and sound ethics inside the classroom.
  • no one really invented it technically. Everyone throughout time have had some sort of organized education whether it was through homeschooling or what not. Way back in the day when people were educated by a hired educator or one of the caretakers.

  • According to Wikipedia, schools have been around since at least the time of the Ancient Greeks, but I suspect they have been around long before that. The Sumerians (3rd Millennium BC) had scribal schools, to train boys in the written language. "Ur-Nammu (r. 2113-2095 BC) founded the 3rd Dynasty of Ur. In addition to being a successful military leader, he was also a social reformer and the originator of a law code that antedates that of the Babylonian king Hammurabi by about three centuries (see Hammurabi, Code of). Ur-Nammu’s son Shulgi (r. 2095-2047 BC) was a successful soldier, a skillful diplomat, and a patron of literature. During his reign the schools and academies of the kingdom flourished." http://history-world.org/sumeria.htm The Ancient Egyptians were off the mark around the same time: http://library.thinkquest.org/J002606/AncientEgypt.html Even the Hebrews seem to have had some sort of school system by 1200 BC A. Demsky in W.W. Hallo ed., THE CONTEXT OF SCRIPTURE, Volume One (Leiden, 1997) as follows: p. 363: "The Izbet Sartah ostracon (ca. 1200) is worth special attention for it is the oldest reduced twenty-two letter alphabet inscribed in the Proto-Canaanite script. This beginner's exercise tablet, written from left to right, is also peculiar in that some of the letters are transposed: the HETH precedes the ZAYIN and the PE comes before the `AIN. " http://oi.uchicago.edu/research/library/ane/digest/1998/v1998.n277 Of course, these schools were elitist, with pupils drawn from the upper classes, and males heavily outweighing the numbers of females who were literate. Universal literacy came much later.

  • 5-24-2017 The ancient Greeks invented schools to teach slaves how to be better slaves. Free families either apprenticed their children to learn a trade, or hired tutors to educate them at home. The slave school system was adopted in India for lower classes, while the Brahmans tutored their children at home. Then the Prussians adopted the system to train soldiers. The Prussians made the only change in the system: instead of classes being conducted while walking outside, they were conducted while seated inside. Eventually USA and then England adopted the system without any further change. The proponents of the slave school have always been open and upfront about their motives: all principles are "to increase control over students."
  • According to Deuteronomy 6:6,7 parents are supposed to educate their own children. Ultimately they are responsible for their child's behavior, education and skill training.
