Conflicting Educational Ideals in America, 1775-1831: Documentary Source Book.
Educational thought among political, religious, educational, and other social leaders during the formative decades of American national life was the focus of the author's research. The initial objective was the discovery of primary materials from the period to fill a gap in the history of American educational thought and practice. Extensive searching of unpublished and uncatalogued library holdings, mainly those of major public and university libraries, yielded a significant quantity of primary documents for this bibliography. The historical and contemporary works, comprising approximately 4,500 primary and secondary educational resources with some surveying the cultural setting of educational thinking in this period, are organized around 26 topics and 109 subtopics with cross-references. Among the educational issues covered by the cited materials are: public vs. private; coed vs. separate; academic freedom, teacher education; teaching and learning theory; and, equality of educational opportunity. In addition to historical surveys and other secondary materials, primary documents include: government documents, books, journals, newspapers, and speeches. (Author/DJB)
