Description:

The School in the United States collects the essential primary documents of the history of education in the United States. Expertly chosen by historian and education scholar James Fraser, these documents walk students through two centuries of U.S. education from Colonial America through present-day reform efforts.Each chapter begins with an introduction that places the selections into context and provides the necessary background to the issues being discussed. In addition, each excerpt is preceded by a brief explanation, providing a solid framework from which to read and making them accessible to every student. Comprehensive enough to be used as a main text, but brief enough to be used along side another, The School in the United States remains an essential resource and textbook for any study of the history of American education.Updates to this third edition include: *Aditional materials on current educational issues including the Common Core State Standards Initiative, educational philanthropy, and increased school privatisation and vouchers. *Additional photographs and illustrations throughout*A new companion website that includes a full Instructor's Manual and sample syllabi.
