Philosophic Conflicts in American Education, 1893-2000 offers a description of the ideas that educational reformers shared during the twentieth century. Although many commentators portray the debates about educational reform as a struggle for the American curriculum, this text stresses the fact that the competing groups of educators had a great deal in common showing how philosophical perspectives influenced practical school programs. The theme of this book is unique, and it challenges many conventional ideas found in previously published foundations texts.
