Summary

This point-of-view, comprehensive, up-to-date history of American education is designed to stimulate critical analysis and critical thinking. It offers decidedly alternative interpretations of each historical period. It has an emphasis on the role of multiculturalism and cultural domination in shaping US schools, on schools as one of many institutions that manage the distribution of ideas in society, on racism as a central issue in US history and US educational history, and on economic issues as an important factor in understanding the evolution of US schools.
