Liberal journalism and American education, 1914-1941 by James M Wallace( Book )

10 editions published between 1966 and 1991 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between two liberal journals and the institutions and personnel of formal education was studied. "The nation" and "new republic" were selected as being influentially representative of intellectual american liberalism during the 20th century. Standard techniques of historical research were employed. Relevant sources in political, social, intellectual, educational, and journalistic history were examined. Editorials, articles, book reviews, and letters in the two journals from 1914 to 1941 were read and analyzed. Interviews with several of the editors and writers were also conducted. The conclusions indicated that (1) the journals served as a common meeting ground for political liberals and progressive educators, (2) the liberal consensus noted on education seemed to be more firmly grounded than that in most other areas of thought, and (3) the educational material in the journals had an impact at least on the thinking of certain articulate liberals.

The promise of progressivism : Angelo Patri & urban education by James M Wallace( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and German and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Promise of Progressivism: Angelo Patri and Urban Education is a biography of Angelo Patri, a well-known progressive educator during the first half of the twentieth century. A follower of John Dewey, Patri was the principal of two large community-oriented progressive schools in the Bronx from 1907 to 1944. As the first Italian-American school administrator in the United States, he helped immigrant families to maintain their language and heritage while preparing for success in American society. Patri's syndicated column of advice for parents was carried in hundreds of newspapers, had millions of readers, and provided material for the twelve advice books he published for parents. As educator and writer, Patri helped immigrants and mainstream Americans to understand one another and to work together for the common good."--BOOK JACKET

Curriculum, accreditation, and coming of age of higher education( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This latest volume in Roger Geiger's distinguished series on the history of higher education begins with a rare glimpse into the minds of mid-nineteenth century collegians. Timothy J. Williams mines the diaries of students at the University of North Carolina to unearth a not unexpected preoccupation with sex, but also a complex psychological context for those feelings. Marc A. VanOverbeke continues the topic in an essay shedding new light on a fundamental change ushering in the university era: the transition from high schools to college. The secularization of the curriculum is a fundamental feature of the emergence of the modern university. Katherine V. Sedgwick explores a distinctive manifestation by questioning why the curriculum of Bryn Mawr College did not refl ect the religious intentions of its Quaker founder and trustees. Secularization is examined more broadly by W. Bruce Leslie, who shows how denominational faith ceded its ascendancy to "Pan-Protestantism."Where does the record of contemporary events end and the study of history begin? A new collection of documents from World War II to the present invites Roger Geiger's refl ection on this question, as well as consideration of the most signifi cant trends of the postwar era. Educators chafi ng under current attacks on higher education may take solace or dismay from the essay "Shaping a Century of Criticism" in which Katherine Reynolds Chaddock and James M. Wallace explore H.L. Mencken's writings, which address enduring issues and debates on the meaning and means of American higher education."--Provided by publisher
