This was because the only schools at the time were religious and this money was to be used for higher education not general education. You also did not mention that he ommitted religion from his 1778 Bill for the More General Diffusion of Knowledge and left religion out of his of 1817 Bill for Establishing a System of Public Education. If Jefferson believed that religion should be ingrained in public schools he had a funny way of showing it...

Jefferson also believed that only males should attend school.
Your point?
