Case Study in History of Education during the 1970s: Published Stories of the Midwest History of Education Society
McKenzie, Mark
American Educational History Journal, v32 n2 p208-213 2005
The rapid expansion of public schooling during the 1950s and 1960s increased the need for teachers and teacher training. Colleges accomplished this by having professors of education train other educators in foundations of education. This broke the connections between academic history, philosophy, and sociology and educational history, philosophy, and sociology (Pratte 1979). The high demand for teachers and ruptured connections between academic history and educational history combined to birth the Midwest History of Education Society (MHES). This case study of society publications in history of education investigates how well have authors incorporated the foundations of education intent in the history of education. The author concludes that, except that is, for the first few years of the MHES journal, the focus of the journal's contributors has been primarily inward.
