The people began to see the increasing need of education for their children.On March 4, 1848 the legislature of Mississippi passed an act to establish a system of common schools but differed in the method of its support.


A large part of what is now Lincoln County was a part of Franklin County territory until 1870 when Lincoln County was formed from portions of Franklin, Copiah, Amite, Pike and Lawrence Counties.Many early settlers were indifferent about educating their children and there were but few schoolhouses.

There was no abundance of books and a pupil spent a whole year droning over one thin reader.After 1870 small public schools grew in number.


Among these were 1 Ruth 2 Union 3 Oak Grove 4 Almo 5 Sand Hill 6 McCall Creek 7 Wright Some called it Pine Ridge and 8 Ramah.Up until 1901 there were no public high schools in Franklin County.
