Early Childhood Education Historyprovides an understandable and manageable exploration of the history of early childhood education in the United States. Covering historical, philosophical, and sociological underpinnings that reach from 1800s to today, contributors explore groups and topics that have traditionally been marginalized or ignored in early childhood education literature. Chapters include topics such as home-schooling, James "Jimmy" Hymes, early childhood education in Japanese internment camps, the Eisenhower legacy, and the civil rights movement. This engaging book examines a range of new primary sources to be shared with the field for the first time, including personal narratives, interviews, and letters. Early Childhood Education History is a valuable resource for every early childhood education scholar, student, and educator.
