7. What challenges did Kentuckians face in the 19th century in getting an education?
Schools were very hard to come by in this part of the country. You know, people moved here about 1790-1800. But it was many years after that before they actually started building schools. And for a long time, it was very difficult if not impossible for a child to obtain an education. But by the middle of the 19th century, around 1850, there were schools and nearly all the kids by that time were in school.
