Kershner, Seth – American Educational History Journal, 2014
For more than forty years, parents, teachers, veterans, and community activists have engaged in grassroots resistance to the military's presence in schools.

Graves, Karen – American Educational History Journal, 2014
The "Bakke" decision marked a turning point in higher education. Tested again most recently in "Fisher v.

Groen, Mark – American Educational History Journal, 2014
When viewing the landscape of learning and literacy, politics and policy often intersect. Throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, literacy is one skill that progressives sought to expand and others historically used to restrict access to immigration, jobs, and civic participation.

Kridel, Craig – American Educational History Journal, 2013
In "The Transformation of the School", Lawrence Cremin warned against formulating any capsule definition of progressive education: "None exists, and none ever will; for throughout its history progressive education meant different things to different people, and these differences were only compounded by the remarkable diversity of…

Groen, Mark – American Educational History Journal, 2013
This paper examines why so many northern teachers ventured into the South in the 1860s, and the reasons southerners first sought them out, and later wanted the teachers "put to rout." Changing attitudes toward teaching and learning, textbooks and teachers, were part of the emerging national identity of the antebellum South.

Breitborde, Mary-Lou – American Educational History Journal, 2013
The Civil War ended slavery but not the pernicious inequality of power and status that still characterizes relations between black and white America.

The National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS or Council), founded in 1921, is the premiere professional association in the social studies field.
