Things I Should Have or Could Have Accomplished
Urban, Wayne J.
History of Education Quarterly, v53 n2 p157-162 May 2013
The author wishes to divide this essay into two sections, one indicating things he might have added to a few earlier works, and a second indicating a project or two that he did not complete but would like to have done. First he discusses the incomplete projects. He begins by saying that he has done a lot of work on teacher organizations and has long cherished that work. Unfortunately, it has depended on the availability of documents, as is the case in doing any kind of history. The net result is that the author has devoted a significant amount of time to the National Education Association (NEA), a group which has preserved in its documentary heritage, a collection that he has used in two books and a number of articles. Turning to projects he would like to have done, but did not complete, he mentions that he has always had a deep respect in history of education studies for those who do quantitative work. He declares them adept at quantification but also feels a justifiable need, to explain what they are doing to the rest of the profession who are quantitatively naive. Other studies he would like to undertake relate to aspects of his own life and career. (Contains 11 footnotes.)
