Summary

The Greatest Generation Grows Up describes an America in which grade-based grammar schools and high schools expanded rapidly as education came to be considered a necessity in American life. Children in school were seen as more productive than children in low-paying jobs or no jobs. As a consequence, the social assault on child labor largely succeeded in the thirties. Meanwhile radio broadcasters, filmmakers, and manufacturers were beginning to market their products directly to children and teens, in a powerful link of consumerism with modern childhood. In all, Ms. Lindenmeyer shows how the thirties experience worked to confer greater identity on American children.
