Summary: Antonio Valencia here presents to the Municipal Council of Popayán a detailed historical account of a religious convent founded in 1822; in 1895 it became the place where a school for girls was located.

Historical Notes: In 1870 the central government initiated reforms to create a public education system throughout Colombia. The three central features of this reform were: to establish free and obligatory elementary, middle, and high schools; to institute secular education; and to create an education system which would promote the liberal ideas of the government.
