Hogan, David
History of Education Quarterly, v36 n3 p243-70 Fall 1996
Examines the social and economic pressures exerted on U.S. society by industrialization and a market economy and the concurrent effect on public education. Argues that market forces shaped education as a credentialing process that ensured social stratification. Discusses the present application of this process and its implications for educational reform. (MJP)
