From 'Order' to 'Economy': Education and Order in Eighteenth-Century America.
Kuritz, Hyman
Some of the premises and problems basic to an assessment of the role that education played in the creation of social order in eighteenth century America are outlined. The author describes the educational process by which a labor force was created and shaped in Colonial America. The transition from the conceptions of order geared to seventeenth century ideas of station, status, and rank to ideas of free movement and mobility associated with a free labor force is discussed together with the transformation of societies with their own particular structures, values, and culture from pietistic communities to liberal American communities.
