ASTAKOS PUBLISHING PAYS TRIBUTE TO HORACE MANN (1796 - 1859)


Astakos Publishing chose May as its publication date for its first children’s book, Even the Dead Get Up for Milk / Hasta los muertos se levantan por leche, to honor Horace Mann, “the father of American public education.”

 

Mann was born in Franklin, Massachusetts, on May 4, 1796. He grew up in poverty, but he managed to attend and graduate from Brown University. He served as the first secretary of the State Board of Education of Massachusetts where he provided moral leadership for twelve years.

 

Mann fought for many causes, but none was closer to his heart than the education of all children regardless of their race, creed, or economic background.

 

In one of his final speeches he said, “I beseech you to treasure up in your hearts these my parting words: Be ashamed to die until you have won some small victory for humanity.”

 

Astakos Publishing celebrates the love of reading as the primary key to education. Astakos believes the greatest gift parents and educators can give children is to teach them how to read well. That in itself is a “small victory for humanity.”
