    One thought on “Schooled to Order: A Social History of Public Schooling in the United States”

    1. Great historical review of the educational systems birth and maturation from a liberal point of view Interesting to me in the capitalist and social context.

    2. Nasaw writes about U.S education from 1835 1970 He maintains a critical tone as describes the development of primary schools 1835 1855 , high schools 1895 1915 and schools of higher education 1945 1970 He contends that during each of these periods the central goal of the developers was not to educate students but to socialize them to be well mannered, law abiding , religious and compliant when they joined the workforce It was heartening to read that the disadvantaged were surprisingly savy about [...]

    3. this book is really great and made me hate most if not all institutions of education i don t think that was his point anyway,one day when i was working at the archives at the JFK Library i realized one of our researchers was David Nasaw The David Nasaw Then, in shock, i somehow overturned a cart after getting a wheel stuck in between the floor and the elevator documents of National Security from the hollinger boxes littered the floor i almost started to cry, and then David Nasaw came over in a v [...]

    4. While this book can be pretty dry at times despite the authors sarcastic wit , it is a pretty interesting examination of the development of public education in America It does jump large chunks of history as it progresses through the levels of education and I believe its assessment of community colleges is no longer accurate as they have evolved to suit new needs in American socity Otherwise it s pretty fascinating to see how the school system developed as it did and why.

    5. Readable, with powerful arguments Nasaw s interest lies in the social drivers behind public school reform, so there are issues which get left out That isn t a criticism not only are those social motivations glossed over in most current debate, the existence of them either historically or currently isn t even on most people s radar.

    6. Nasaw s social history of education focuses on class and less on race what you are left with is an incomplete picture, and the forces that restrict access to education for the working class are far less insidious than the slavemasters and segregationists.

    7. Not what I was expecting, and hard to follow at times Even so, the similarities between the three time periods were drawn out well The second section was especially interesting.
