9780072322743: The American School 1642 - 2000

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.

About the Author:

Professor Spring is the author of many books including The Cultural Transformation of a Native American Family and Its Tribe 1763-1995: A Basket of Apples; Images of American Life: A History of Ideological Management in Schools, Movies, Radio, and Television; and Political Agendas for Education: From the Christian Coalition to the Green Party.
