Description: "American Education: A History, 4th edition is a history of American education from pre-colonial times to the present. Chronologically organized, it provides an overview of each major period in the development of American education, setting the discussion against the broader backdrop of national and world events. The first text to explore Native American traditions (including education) prior to colonization, it also offers strong, ongoing coverage of minorities and women." "The fourth edition includes more visual illustrations as well as new or expanded attention to the Jacksonian era and the politics surrounding the Common School, the McGuffey Readers, church-school-immigrant conflicts and accommodations, the Morrill Acts, community colleges, youth organizations, the social, economic, educational and personal impact of the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl years, education and the Civilian Conservation Corps, National Youth Administration, and Bush's "No Child Left Behind" Act. Also, a new epilogue provides closing comments on the present and future prospects for American education."--BOOK JACKET.
