"This is an excellent text in the field of U.S. educational history. The author does a great job of linking past events to the current trends and debates in education. There is more than adequate documentation and arguments are logical and well presented. I am quite enthusiastic about this book. It is well-written, interesting, accessible, quite balanced in perspective, and comprehensive. It includes section, and details that I found fascinating- and I think students will too." -Gina Giuliano, University at Albany, SUNY American Educational History: School, Society, and the Common Good is an up-to-date, contemporary examination of historical trends that have helped shape schools and education in the United States. Author William H. Jeynes places a strong emphasis on recent history, most notably post-WWII issues such as the role of technology, the standards movement, affirmative action, bilingual education, undocumented immigrants, school choice, and much more!Key Features:Makes clear connections between major historical trends and the shaping of U.S. education: This book thoroughly examines the extent to which major historical trends shaped education and vice versa.Stimulates educational debate: Students are introduced to cutting-edge controversies in a way that allows them to consider a variety of viewpoints and develop their own thinking skills.Offers a contemporary focus: While a balanced examination is given of educational history beginning with the Colonial experience and through the present day, this book gives more attention to post-World War II events than do competing books.Examines the educational history of groups that increasingly have a greater impact on U.S. society: Generous coverage is given to African American, Native American and women's educational history, as well as that of Latinos and Asian Americans.Intended Audience:This core text is designed for undergraduate and graduate courses such as Foundations of Education; American Educational History; Introduction to Education; Philosophy of Education; Sociology of Education; Educational Policy; and Educational Reform in the departments of Education, History, and Sociology.
