The Cleveland City Normal School, 1874-1936.
Kline, Melinda; Dye, Charles M.
The Cleveland (Ohio) Board of Education opened the Cleveland City Normal School in the fall of 1874 to provide a teacher corps for the public schools that was prepared to meet the unique needs of the rapidly growing metropolitan area. Increased Ohio teacher certification requirements prompted the school board and Western Reserve University to collaborate in establishing the Cleveland School of Education in 1915. In 1936, the Cleveland Board of Education withdrew all financial support for the School of Education, which had become part of the Western Reserve University, because of reduced tax revenues and due to the inability of the University to comply with important aspects of the original agreement of cooperation.
