The northern British colonies relied only on subsistence farming for the most part while southern colonies ranged from small farms to large plantations over 2,000 acres wide. Due to the large plantations, the southern colonies switched from indentured servants to African slaves as their labor source. Between the 17th and 18th centuries, African slaves were the majority in some southern colonies. The northern colonies did not rely heavily upon African slaves. Also, the northern colonies consisted mostly of Puritans while the southern colonies consisted of Protestants. Education in the northern colonies was far superior to southern education, for northerners emphasized Puritan based education off of the Bible and created the first tax-supported schools while education for southerners consisted mainly of passed down knowledge.
