dekalbschools The History of Education in DeKalb County is typical of the southern region of the United States. When the United States was established, the Constitution delegated authority to the states for providing education. Georgia’s Constitution, adopted in 1777, provided that each county would set up its own education program with support from the state. That support was in the form of land grants for establishing academies in the counties and for the University of Georgia. DeKalb County was established in 1823, and in the first fifty years of the county’s history, all schools were private, although they did receive some monies from the state. The first school was DeKalb Academy, established in 1825. In 1838, Stone Mountain Academy opened. A system of free public schools did not become a reality in Georgia until the late nineteenth century.
