Abstract

In the United Sates, the use of education has been evolving in accordance with the needs of society. The primary role of education in the 20th century ranged from instructing the youth in various religious doctrines as well as preparing them to live independently. Schooling has also been critical in assimilating immigrants into the mainstream society as well as preparing workers for industrialization in the 20th century. Education was also essential in the 20th century as it acted as a tool of shaping and preparing the young for their futures in a rapidly changing world. Education in this error also worked as a tool for creating adults who can compete in a global economy as well as emotionally healthy adults who can engage in meaningful relationships.
