"Now in its fourth edition, American Education: A History is the best general history of American education in print today. With twelve chapters containing material ranging from Native American education in precolonial America to the advent of No Child Left Behind at the turn of the twenty-first-century, Urban and Wagoner’s textbook presents a comprehensive survey of American educational history that is unparalleled."—Jeffrey Aaron Snyder, Education Review, September 2009
