The Social Origins of English Education.
Simon, Joan
The author's historical approach to the study of education accounts for the past in terms of the past rather than the present. Thus, formal schooling is but one type of socialization traced in this survey. The intention of the book is to suggest a new starting point opening up the whole field of education for consideration. New developments in historical scholarship have made possible the recasting of the history of education as an aspect of social and intellectual history. The first part surveys the early development of education in England in broad outline, up to the twelfth century. In the second part three main topics are taken up in more detail, drawing on recent historical monography which bear closely on education: 1) The Agricultural Year: Rural Experience and Upbringing; 2) The Urban Outlook: Civility and the Education of Children; 3) Learning and Teaching: The Legacy of the Medieval University. Footnotes and a selected annotated bibliography complete the study. (Author/DJB)
