THE STRUGGLE OVER PUBLIC EDUCATION IN EARLY AMERICA
This case addresses the topic of public education in the United States through the early 1850s. It considers the rise of the Common School Movement over the first half of the nineteenth century, including the ideas of Horace Mann, school curriculum and the impact of immigration and religious diversity, culminating in a fiercely contested decision over tax-funded schools in New York State in 1851.
Class sessions are from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm EDT, Monday through Friday.
Tuition for each one-week session is $95. Scholarships are available on a need basis.
