Lincoln and Education.
Provenzo, Eugene F., Jr.
Educational Studies: A Journal in the Foundations of Education, v13 n2 p190-202 Sum 1982
While throughout his political career Lincoln spoke of the value and importance of learning, only in a very few instances did he actively encourage and support the development of public education. Lincoln's indifference toward public support for education is considered within the context of the frontier experience and the tradition of the self-made person. (Author/AM)
