Overview

The Politics of School Reform, 1870-1940 by Paul E. Peterson

Was school reform the decades following the Civil War an upper-middle-class effort to maintain control of the schools? Was public education simply a vehicle used by Protestant elites to impose their cultural ideas upon recalcitrant immigrants? This book challenges such standard, revisionist interpretations of American educational history.
