Seeking common ground : public schools in a diverse society by David B Tyack( Book )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 978 libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: The American republic will survive only if its citizens are educated--this was an article of faith of its founders. But seeking common civic ground in public schools has never been easy in a society where schoolchildren followed different religions, adhered to different cultural traditions, spoke many languages, and were identified as members of different "races." In this wise and enlightening book, filled with vivid characters and memorable incidents that make history but don't always make history books, David Tyack describes how each American generation grappled with the knotty task of creating political unity and social diversity. Seeking Common Ground illuminates puzzles about democracy in education and chronic conflicts that continue to make news. Americans mistrusted government, yet they entrusted the civic education of their children to public schools. American history textbooks were notoriously dull, but they were also highly controversial. Although the people liked local control of schools, educational experts called it "democracy gone to seed" and campaigned to "take the schools out of politics." Reformers argued about whether it was more democratic to teach all students the same subjects or to tailor curriculum to individuals. And what was the best way to "Americanize" immigrants, asked educators: by forced-fed assimilation or by honoring their ethnic heritages? With a broad perspective and an eye for telling detail, Tyack lets us see that debates about the civic purposes of schools are an essential part of a democratic culture, and integral to its future

The dream deferred : a golden age for women school administrators by Elisabeth Hansot( Book )
5 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 68 libraries worldwide
Despite contrary predictions, men have retained their near-monopoly of top positions in educational administration and have even replaced women where they had gained a toehold, as in elementary principalships. The pattern in education follows that in many complex white-collar organizations; horizontal and vertical segregation of male and female jobs systematically limits opportunities for women, with the result that women form the bulk of the work force and men serve as bosses. This situation can be explained by the character of organizations and their shaping of the behavior of members and by male hegemony in society as a whole. In school administration, men are most likely to be found in positions with the greatest power, pay, and prestige and in jobs requiring supervision of other males. As teaching principalships declined in elementary schools, for example, and became full-time administrative positions, the percentage of women principals declined markedly. Current educational retrenchment bodes ill for prospective women administrators. Males will probably hold on to their present positions and new openings will be more restricted. Bringing about lasting change will require persistent effort at the individual, organizational, and broader social levels. (Author/WD)
Women and men in the schools : a history of the sexual structuring of educational employment by David B Tyack( Book )
3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 62 libraries worldwide
In examining the sexual structuring of employment in public education from 1840 to 1980, the following social phenomenon are discussed: (1) socially accepted attitudes on the role of women in the early part of the nineteenth century; (2) the structure of schooling and cultural emphasis upon the "natural" abilities of women to instruct young children; (3) the emergence of male teachers, the reasons they were attracted to teaching, and the reasons they tended to move from teaching to either school administration or other careers; (4) the gradual shift from rural to urban schooling and its impact upon the roles of men and women in the schools; (5) the rationale for paying men teachers more than women teachers; (6) the organization of the school systems and the resemblance of these systems to concurrently rising industrial structures; (7) the impact of the patriarchal society of mid-nineteenth century American thinking and the resulting assumption that women teachers would follow the lead of male supervisors; (8) the differences in life style and behavior patterns imposed by society upon men and women; (9) the impact of World War ii on opportunities for both sexes; (10) how shifting cultural values have changed role patterns for both sexes; and (11) the rise of teacher organizations and unions and how they are changing the power structure in education.

Toward a social history of law and public education by David B Tyack( Book )
4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 61 libraries worldwide
This exploratory essay suggests the contours of a social history of law and public education. The essay departs from two traditional approaches to educational law: the study of landmark cases, and textbooks that delimit legally approved practice. Instead the changing dialectic between statutory and court-decided law is analyzed, stressing how Americans used the legal system in different periods to accomplish different purposes. Then the essay explores how school promoters and educational professionals used legislation to establish and standardize schools, how interest groups employed law to assert normative dominance for their own values, and how people used the courts to challenge established practices or to resolve conflicts. Quantitative pilot studies are used to describe and explain changing patterns of litigation. Finally, an appraisal is made of recent attempts to use legislation and court action to promote social justice for neglected groups. (Author/MLF)
