This chapter attempts to show that patterns of school established in New England and in the southeastern states migrated with the settlers to other parts of the continent. First, it broadly delineates the teaching patterns in the Middle Atlantic region and in the Midwest, and then focuses intensively on a case study of the Illinois teaching patterns. In the third major region of original settlement, the Middle Atlantic, women teachers were neither as prevalent as in New England nor as rare as in the South. The chapter concentrates on New York and Pennsylvania. The migration of New Englanders was a noteworthy factor in the history of both states, but especially in New York, from the last decades of the colonial era until well into the nineteenth century.
