Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Although Mormons in general placed a high value on education, frontier conditions challenged efforts to realize a formal education system. The agrarian schedule competed for students' time. Most schools were started and run by women.

Topics covered include early schooling, physical facilities, curriculum, and pedagogical tools.
