Divided into four parts, this document presents papers covering: quantitative analysis and educational history, ethnicity and education, educational paradigms, and schooling in the urban heartland. The first paper in part 1, "The Social and Economic Correlates of School Attendance among the Children of Textile Workers, 1890" (D. L. Angus, B. A. Hilbert, and J. E. Mirel) is based on the 1890 and 1891 annual reports of the commissioner of labor. "Path Analysis: Another Research Tool for the Educational Historian" (I. Newman and C. M. Dye) reviews the uses of path analysis as a research methodology. Part 2 begins with "A Test of Andrew M. Greeley's Six Step Theory of Ethnic Assimilation by the Use of Norwegian-American Historiography" (F. C. Nelsen). "Ethnicity and Ethnic Studies Revisited" (M. M. Krug) reviews the rise in the 1970s of ethnic awareness in education. "Two Christian Ideas of Childhood: Clement of Alexandria and Augustine" (J. J. Chambliss) contrasts Clement's childhood innocence based on Christ's teaching and Augustine's sinfulness of children as a burden received from Adam. "Paradigms of Education: An Overview" (R. Marks) is an introduction for a larger study on the overview of the enlightenment, evolutionary, progressive, and perennial paradigms. Part 4, "The Irony of Twentieth-Century Educational Policy and Juvenile Delinquency in Chicago, 1890-1972" (M. W. Sedlak) describes the sexual discrimination of educational solutions. The proceedings, the business meeting's minutes, and the directory of attendance are included along with an index to the first 10 volumes of the proceedings. (DJC)
