Excerpt from The Teaching of Latin and Greek in the Secondary School

Secondary education is no new thing. Human society has always granted commanding positions to men who were qualified by natural ability and special training to lead their fellows. With advancing civilization the need of specially trained leaders became increasingly apparent; schools were eventually established to meet this need. Such institutions, however rudimentary their course of instruction, were essentially secondary schools. Thus the schools of the grammarians and rhetoricians were calculated to develop leadership in the forum at a time when oratory was a recognized power in the political life of Greece and Rome. Later in the Middle Age the Church became the dominant social force, and gave rise to cathedral and monastic schools for the education of the clergy. With the founding of universities, however, the secondary schools took over the preparation of promising youths for professional study in the interests of Church and State. And this function has continued to be the chief characteristic of secondary education until the present time.

The modern elementary school, on the other hand, is of comparatively recent growth.
