Walters, Pamela Barnhouse; O'Connell, Philip J.
American Journal of Sociology, v93 n5 p1116-52 Mar 1988
An analysis of state-level patterns for 1890-1940 shows that urban industrialism, religion, and race had varying effects across different dimensions of schooling including public versus private enrollment for younger versus older children. Argues that the diversity of educational patterns can be explained by differences in the family's need for child labor and the availability of work. (Author/GEA)
