"Such higher training-schools tended naturally to deepen broader development: at first they were common and grammar schools, then some became high school. And finally, by 1900 some thirty-four had one year or more of studies of college grade" (para. 15)
So I don't know if anyone has noticed but I am also interested in the current to past connections. Here is another one. It is interesting to see how little schooling they had back then. Now a days, most people in the world attend college. Back then not many, mostly wealthy, people went to school let alone college. They just started it. It is just so crazy for me.
