(p.221) Chapter 6 Higher Education in the New Century
A History of Education in Kentucky

William E. Ellis

University Press of Kentucky

At the turn of the twentieth century, Kentuckians were influenced, indeed had been impacted for much of their history, by educational experiences beyond the classroom. In the broadest sense, education is “intergenerational, with adults teaching children”. The church remained the center of not only worship but also learning in the nineteenth century. Higher education in the Kentucky mountains received an added impetus when Alice Lloyd's vision of educating and uplifting Appalachian youth resulted in the founding of Caney Junior College in 1923. Higher education in Kentucky followed national trends in the early twentieth century. Although public normal school education in Kentucky evolved at a slower pace than in the rest of the nation, it now appeared to be on the move. Kentucky higher education in the 1930s showed other signs of stress and division, the ferment of the radicalism of the time.
