In this paragraph we will be talking about Education. First we will talk about education. Boys in the NY colony spent 3 years in school and girls even less time in school. There were no free schools in the NY Colony , you would have to pay a teacher for each subject you want your child to learn but all prices were different. Reading was the cheapest to pay and math and writing would be a little bit more expensive. The classes cost was 6 to 10 pennies which was worth a lot those days, but it still a little cheap so usually teachers had other jobs after school.
