Vincent Anfara, University of Tennessee In order to teach for the future, you must understand the past. Join author Joseph Watras on a tour from colonial days to the present in this new textbook that both reconstructs the past and... looks towards the future of education in America. A History of American Education provides a vivid picture of the highlights and challenges U.S. education has experienced across the centuries. It explores the ideas of key educators, the interaction between the public s ideals and the realities of schools, and the consequences of educational reforms within the larger context of an increasingly connected society. Watras special attention to the influences and implications of globalization on U.S. educational systems and practices offers unique insight into the international forces both historic and current that affect the ways in which American students are taught. With its considerable information about changes in curriculum, educational administration, and teaching practices, this engaging text takes an approach to recounting history that is unlike any other text: it contextualizes the practice of education within the historical narrative of education, for a fuller understanding of both.
