About the Author

James W. Fraser is the 2013-2014 President of the History of Education Society and Professor of History and Education at the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development at New York University, USA.


"This is my favorite book that I use with my students. It allows me a lot of creativity in planning the course curriculum and I like that students can learn from the primary sources without me having to search for all of the documents."-Josephine Tabet Sarvis, PhD, Dominican University

"James Fraser provides an excellent comprehensive collection of primary sources that provide the student with an opportunity for reflecting, constructing meaning, and establishing relationships with the past through the ideas and experiences of thsoe who lived it and helped form American education as we know it."-Sam F. Stack Jr., Professor, Social and Cultural Foundations, West Virginia University

"Fraser has most certainly achieved his goal of providing students `with a way to immerse themselves in some of the major debates that have consumed educators over the decades.' His book enables students to become historians."-Christine A. Ogren, Associate Professor, Educational Policy and Leadership Studies, the University of Iowa
