Brouillette, Matthew J.
Texas Education Review, v1 n4 p5-12 Win 2001-2002
Documents the rise of U.S. government K-12 schools, explaining that today's K-12 education clashes with the country's political, economic, social, and cultural traditions. Reviews U.S. education prior to the 1850s, examining how religious bigotry motivated many early advocates of government schools, and noting that, contrary to today's conventional wisdom, literacy rates were higher before government schools were established.
