The Significance of the American High School.
American Journal of Education, v104 n3 p218-30 May 1996
Focusing on the middle of the 19th-century, William J. Reese tells how the public high school went from being an embattled institution with an antirepublican image to a dominant educational institution. Tracing the early development of high schools is an important contribution to the history of education. (SLD)
