Minorities and the Transformation of American Education

Paula S. Fass

In this pathbreaking book, Paula S. Fass presents a wide-ranging examination of the role of "outsiders" in the creation of modern education. Through a series of in-depth and fascinating case studies, she demonstrates how issues of pluralism have shaped the educational landscape and how various minority groups have been affected by their educational experiences. This is a sweeping and highly original history of American education that helps us to understand how schools have been shaped by their students, how educational issues have merged with wider social concerns, and how outsiders have re-created schooling and culture in the 20th century.
