Katz's 1968 classic is here accompanied by a lengthy new introduction by the author that assesses the changes in the field. The work locates the origins of American public education policy in education reform initiatives that accompanied the development of cities in Massachusetts following the Civil War. Katz (history, U. of Pennsylvania) delivers a strong critique of American formal education, one which, according to the new preface, still remains pertinent today. Annotation c.
