Tadaaa, Aztec. Done just before midnight. OTLSchool in the Aztec Empire
The Aztecs were among the first civilizations to enforce mandatory education for all citizens regardless of gender or class. Girls, boys and slaves were all educated. There were two tiers of education: that of the nobility, and that of the commoners. If a commoner demonstrated that they were exceptionally bright, they might have the option of attending a higher level of schooling. Most Aztecs were trained to be good citizens and strong warriors by performing a lot of labour around the city. They would learn history and religion at school. Girls attended school, but separate from the boys. They would learn more domestic tasks like managing the household and taking care of children, although some girls would stay in the temple studying to be priestesses rather than getting married. Upper class Aztecs would learn to read and write, astronomy, math, medicine, and religion. It seemed that there was some degree of choice in Aztec education: they could study to be artisans, farmers, or even professional athletes (to name a few). The nobility were expected to take high ranking jobs in government and religion.
Music was a very important part of Aztec education because it was very closely tied with religious rituals, so most students had some experience with it. Back to School SeriesSumerAkkadAssyria and BabyloniaPersiaEgyptAthensSpartaRomeMayaInca
