The City Normal Schools of Cleveland and Akron, Ohio.
Kline, Melinda J.
The public school systems of 19th century Cleveland and Akron, Ohio, desiring a qualified and ready corps of teachers to staff their respective school systems, established normal schools to train their own staff. Increased Ohio certification requirements prompted Western Reserve University and the Cleveland school board as well as the Municipal University of Akron along with the Akron school board to formulate joint teacher training programs that eventually were absorbed into their respective universities. Each program was supported by the boards of education as well as their university affiliate. By June 1931 and June 1936, the Akron school board and Cleveland school board voted to discontinue their financial support to their university affiliate, citing economic and organizational difficulties within each educational partnership.
