The State Constitution of 1790 only suggested that the "legislature shall, as soon as conveniently may be, provide by law for the establishment of schools throughout the State, in such a manner that the poor may be taught gratis"; the Constitution of 1838 repeated the suggestion and the various laws which the legislature passed in regard to education were not enforded.  Consequently, with few exceptions, only the children of parents who were willing and able to pay attened school, and the amount of time spent there depended upon the individual family.
