From the Publisher
"The Gordons really know how to tell stories. Readers will appreciate how they reconstruct the lives of teachers over two centuries, largely in settings outside formal schooling. Scholars and students of the roles of women in the history of education will find a wonderful archive of material….In their areas of emphasis, and in the book's readability, scholarship, and ease of use as a reference tool, the Gordons succeeded admirably."
History of Education Quarterly/Teachfirst, Inc.

No definitive Education History or American History reference collection can be considered complete without the inclusion of ^ILiteracy In America^R."
