Students come alive when dealing with primary sources. Yet no current History of Education text supplies primary source documents. Frasers unique text is a documentary history of education in the United States and can save the instructor from doing a good deal of photocopying. It consists of primary source documents which illustrate and map the establishment and evolution of education in America. For example, the text includes documents such as Beechers Essay on the Education of Female Teachers, A Nation At Risk: Report of the National Commission on Excellence in Education, and selections from Deweys School and Society and Holts How Children Fail. Introductions and explanations frame the primary sources to help students understand the background and context of the documents. The book can be used as a main or a supplemental text at either the undergraduate or graduate level..
