Garrison, Joshua – American Educational History Journal, 2009
Unrealistic as they may have been, television shows like Leave it to Beaver and Ozzie and Harriet served important social purposes during an age of tumult and anxiety.

Groen, Mark – American Educational History Journal, 2009
The 1960s was a tumultuous decade in American public education. It was a time of transition and change. To many Americans in the early 1960s, Max Rafferty appeared to be a reactionary conservative harking back to an educational past. The longer perspective of history may instead see Rafferty as a harbinger of the educational policies of the 1990s.…

Since its inception in the 1920s, the field of gifted education has remained in a constant ebb and flow.

Hyndman, June Overton – American Educational History Journal, 2009
Schools are public entities that reflect the inequalities of communities; inequalities in race, gender, and socioeconomic status.

Harrington, James J. – American Educational History Journal, 2009
In Central America the Cold War support of the elites by the United States was designed to ward off the communist threat.

Spearman, Mindy – American Educational History Journal, 2009
Most historians interested in the cultural history of nineteenth-century America are familiar with the lyceum movement, first popularized by Massachusetts' Josiah Holbrook. While lyceums were extremely popular during the 1820s and 1830s, they disappeared with the advent of the Civil War--though later providing inspiration for Chautauquan lectures…

Stallones, Jared R. – American Educational History Journal, 2009
A number of authors have drawn connections between progressive education and the Social Gospel movement, the Second Great Awakening, and other phenomena of 19th century America.

Blasingame, Christina; Brown, Dee; Duemer, Lee S.; Green, Birgit; Richardson, Belinda – American Educational History Journal, 2009
America has an over 200 year tradition of underground publications spanning a wide range of social and political expression. One notable period in this tradition was the era of the 1960s and early 1970s, and students' efforts to express themselves and challenge the status quo.

Morowski, Deborah L. – American Educational History Journal, 2009
Throughout the 1920s and early 1930s, the quality of education for school children in Texas was inconsistent and control of public schools resided with local communities. As a result, teachers' salaries across the state were inequitable among the races, as well as among different divisions within a single district. School district spending was…

Beyer, C. Kalani – American Educational History Journal, 2009
Recently, there has been an interest in investigating who have historically served in the American military, particularly during periods of war. These studies report that men from lower socio-economic groups tend to be over represented in military service, especially after voluntary service replaced the draft during the 1970s. Much work remains to…
