The scope of this work has been indicated through the title. There were in New Netherland both Dutch and English settlements; the schools of the former only are included in the study. For a long time after the English took over the colony, the Dutch clung to their language and customs. The effort herein made is to trace the history of these Dutch schools, beginning with their first transplanting from the United Netherlands and continuing down to the American Revolution, by which time the Dutch population was in large measure merged in the common American stock. The following chapters are included: (1) General introduction; (2) The schools of the Netherlands in the seventeenth century; (3) The date of the first school in New Netherland; (4) The masters of the official elementary school at New Amsterdam; (5) The support and control of the official elementary school of New Amsterdam; (6) The Latin School at New Amsterdam; (7) The private school masters of New Netherlands; (8) The schools of the Dutch villages of New Netherland; (9) The New York City School, 1664-1674; (10) The School of the Rerformed Dutch Church of New York City, 1674-1776; (11) The School at New Harlem after 1664; (12) The schools of Flatbush after 1664; (13) The schools of other Dutch villages after 1664; (14) The elementary school from within; and (15) Conclusion. A bibliography and index are also included. (Individual chapters contain footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
