Summary
This brief interpretative history of American schooling focuses on the evolving relationship between education and social change. This new edition adopts a thematic approach, investigating the impact of social forces such as industrialization, urbanization, immigration, globalization, and cultural conflict on the development of schools and other educational institutions. It also examines the various ways that schools have contributed to social change, particularly in enhancing th status and accomplishments of certain social groups and not others. Detailed accounts of the experiences of women and minority groups in American history consider how their lives have been affected by education, while "focal point" sections within each chapter allow the reader to hone in on key moments in history and their relevance within the broaser scope of American schooling from the colonial era to the present
