Educated at Brown University, Mann graduated in 1819. He then studied law for a time in Wrentham, Massachusetts. He tutored Latin and Greek for two years and became a librarian at Brown. He studied law at Litchfield Law School and was admitted to the bar in Dedham, Massachusetts in 1823. In 1827, he was elected to the Massachusetts legislature. During his term, he was active in education, public charities and law. He founded an asylum in Worcester and became chairman of its board of trustees in 1833. He moved to Boston, and, in 1835, was elected to the State Senate from Boston. In 1837, he was appointed Secretary of the Massachusetts Board of Education and began a lifelong effort to improved the educational system throughout the state. In 1838, he founded the Common School Journal, which targeted the inadequacies of the educational system. He travelled in Europe during 1843 and visited schools in Prussia and elsewhere. In the spring of 1848, he was elected to the U.S. Congress as a Whig. He advocated anti-slavery and had many congressional battles with anti-abolitionists, including Daniel Webster. He was re-elected as an Independent anti-slavery candidate in 1848, and served until 1853. In 1852, he was elected president of Antioch College in Ohio. Mann collapsed following the commencement in 1859 and passed later that summer.His works include A Few Thoughts For a Young man (1850), Slavery: Letters and Speeches (1851), Powers and Duties of Woman (1853) and Sermons (1861 Posthumous).
