In the latter half of the nineteenth century Galicia became an autonomous province within the Dual Monarchy. In addition to political reforms, changes in education were proposed. Polish language and teaching history of Poland were introduced to schools. Also, some private schools for girls were founded, with an objectives to raise their level of education and prepare them for studies at universities. Schools run by religious congregations played a significant role among them. These were mainly Catholic orders. Schools and children’s bodies were founded with the help of funders. They were landowners who accepted nuns in their estates. Vocational schools for girls were created, they were taught the profession and they were given the opportunity to maintain themselves. The nuns cared for the Catholic upbringing and development of patriotism.
