SUMMARY

American Education: A History presents the history of American Education from precolonial times to the present in a comprehensive, seamless, engaging manner. Comprehensive, balanced, and well written, the text provides an objective overview of historical events alongside thoughtful analysis and integration as it presents each major period in the development of American education against the broader backdrop of national and world events. Each chapter is tightly locked to the preceding and succeeding chapters so that the story of American education unfolds in a seamless manner. This is the only text to explore Native American traditions (including education) prior to Colonization. It also offers very strong, ongoing coverage of minorities and women; exceptional coverage of Education in the nineteenth century in the southern states; and a noteworthy three-chapter cluster (chapters 6, 7, and 8) describing the making of the modern school system before, during, and after the Progressive Era. New to this edition is the addition of the current (1990s) history of education, expanded coverage of Native American education, increased coverage of the development of high schools, added coverage of the cultural literacy movement, and suggestions for further reading located at the end of each chapter.Urban, Wayne J. is the author of 'American Education A History' with ISBN 9780072823219 and ISBN 0072823216.
