Why did Horace Mann feel that reforming the American education system was important?

A. it would help people attain better jobs
B. it would help in the fight to end slavery
C. it would help in the fight for gender equality
D. it would help people become better Christians

My Answer C.

the answer was D, just took the test

My bad I mean B.

Is it A? He seemed invested in making education available to more people. It also can't be D because the text says, "that such education, while profoundly moral in character, must be free of sectarian religious influence"

Is it d

d is correct

it was D
