Overview

The Struggle for the American Curriculum, Herbert Kliebard's classic analysis of curriculum studies and the history of American education, has been an invaluable sourcebook for students and educators alike for over fifteen years. In this third edition, Kliebard expands and clarifies his historical overview of the people, movements, theories, and reforms that have shaped the structure of American schooling. With a new preface, updated references and photographs, and two new chapters delineating the evolution of the curriculum between the Great Depression and the post-World War II period, the third edition is an important re-evaluation of "the search for progressive education."
