I remember Horace Mann from school about 50 years ago. At that times he got a very short mention and I don't know if he is mentioned at all in US schools today. His work on the value of education and libraries should not be overlooked. His rise from basically uneducated to a college graduate, congressman, college president and founder of public schools are certainly a prime example of "yes I can" and an inspriration to all who want to better themselves and their fellow man.
