When the settlers arrived in North Dakota, chances are their native language was all they knew. Soon, rural and urban schools started to pop up in North Dakota. As education developed, the children began to learn to read and write English. The schools created a turning point for the new citizens of North Dakota by allowing their children to learn. As soon as the reservation system began, Indian boarding schools allowed students to assimilate into mainstream culture. Education created a new way of life for children.
