Booknews
In this concise history of American education from colonial days to the present, Rury (education, DePaul U.) focuses on key moments in history that were especially influential in establishing the system of education that exists today. The author focuses on the complex relationships between education and social change. He explores ways in which schools change society<-->by providing means of social mobility and success for certain groups but not others<-->and ways in which society changes schools, through such social forces as industrialization, urbanization, immigration, and cultural conflict. For students in courses in introductory education, the history of education, the social and historical foundations of education, and educational policy studies. Annotation c.
