The concept of teaching students in groups divided into grades was a critical change promoted by the school reform movement that had begun in North Carolina in the 1880's. The Canada School, while not a public school, appeared to have adopted the reform principles when it opened in 1896. The school reform movement gained power statewide when it became tied to the white supremacy campaign of Charles Aycock who was elected Governor in 1901. The governor assuaged the fears of poor white voters by promising better education that would ensure that their children could pass literacy tests required for voting.
