Format: Paperback
Karier found a way to tie together the essential historical events and philosophical movements that have influenced American educational systems. This academic text reads like a novel - Impossible to put down and every page gripping. He adeptly describes and integrates minor philosophies and forgotten events with the major influences shaping the systems of public and higher education in our country. This book would be an excellent choice for foundations courses in educational history and philosophy as well as any course relating to education's role in American society. All chapters hold together well enough to be used as separate supplemental readings, but once you read a few, you just can't stop! I consider this book an absolute MUST READ for any student of education.
