Why Is Joseph Baldwin Influential?

According to Wikipedia, Joseph Baldwin was an American educator, and called by some the "father of the normal school system". Early life Baldwin was born to Joseph and Isabella in New Castle, Pennsylvania. His lifework has been characterized by a pair of related tensions: between religious zeal and a recognition of the need for teachers well-educated in secular subjects, and between potentially opposed emphases on technical training and the liberal arts in teacher preparation. He founded a series of educational institutions which survive into the present day, each of which still bears some mark of his influence.
