Rodríguez, Alexa – History of Education Quarterly, 2023
While US and Dominican officials have traditionally received credit for the expansion of the public school system during the US military occupation of the Dominican Republic from 1916 to 1924, this article offers an alternative account by focusing on the role of guardians, or caretakers, in supporting and creating schools in this period.

Dorn, Charles – History of Education Quarterly, 2023
Alongside Walt Disney's animated movies, television programming, and theme parks, scholars have examined The Walt Disney Studios' "True-Life Adventures" series of live-action nature documentary films for their impact on popular culture.

Justice, Benjamin – History of Education Quarterly, 2023
Schooling in the United States has never been a public good, nor has "the public good" been its primary goal. Since its origins in the early nineteenth century, schooling has been a "white" good, designed to promote white advantage. Three mechanisms, among many, have been key to this process: the relationship of schooling to…

This article traces the rise of anxiety among American high school and college students since the late 1950s, with particular focus on the decades before 2000.

Nocera, Amato – History of Education Quarterly, 2023
This article examines children's literature written by African American teachers during the first part of the twentieth century. Drawing on theories of racialization, I analyze children's books written by two African American teachers: Helen Adele Whiting (1885-1959) and Jane Dabney Shackelford (1895-1979). I argue that their books represented…

In 1963 and 1964, organizers in Boston held Freedom Stay-Outs--one-day school boycotts-- to protest the neglect of predominantly Black schools from the Boston School Committee, the governing body of the Boston Public Schools. Boycotting students attended Freedom Schools, where they learned about Black history and discussed issues facing Black…

McClellan, Cara; Delmont, Matthew – History of Education Quarterly, 2023
America's schools are more segregated today than they were three decades ago. After initial progress in the wake of the Supreme Court's 1954 ruling in "Brown v. Board of Education"--further bolstered by the 1964 Civil Rights Act, as well as by several other rulings by the court--the nation's schools began a process of resegregation in…

Through the lens of the school board, this essay examines school governance dynamics as a southern, historically white public school district struggled to implement school desegregation.

Soares, Leigh – History of Education Quarterly, 2023
This article examines the relationship between gender and leadership in southern public Black colleges from the late nineteenth through the early twentieth century. Public colleges offer a unique view of this relationship because, in an era of disfranchisement, the political stakes of leadership were more obvious than in private schools. I argue…

Ward, Lee – History of Education Quarterly, 2023
While a number of recent studies highlight John Stuart Mill's role as a "teacher of the people," his reflections upon the political significance of higher education have received relatively little attention. I argue that Mill's 1867 St. Andrews Address was both a defense of liberal education against influential arguments for religion-…

Mutongi, Kenda – History of Education Quarterly, 2023
This article argues that the "airlift" language often used to describe the eight hundred Kenyan students who attended US and Canadian universities between 1959 and 1963 is misleading. It assumes that the students were being plucked out of substandard education, yet these youth had received some of the most rigorous education in the…
