Education, Social Reform, and the State: ESEA and Federal Education Policy in the 1960s.
Kantor, Harvey
American Journal of Education, v100 n1 p47-83 Nov 1991
Tracing the history of federal education policy in the 1960s and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) reveals shared assumptions about poverty and the government's role. These assumptions made educational reform essential to the Great Society, even though the federal commitment did not become local priority. (SLD)
