Gaither, Milton – History of Education Quarterly, 2012
When the author first began attending History of Education Society annual meetings as a graduate student in the 1990s, he would often listen wide-eyed to war stories of the good old days when sessions would break down into shouting matches between "radical revisionists" and their opponents. He thinks older generation of historians missed both the…

Scribner, Campbell F. – History of Education Quarterly, 2012
The launch of "Sputnik" in 1957 sparked a crisis in American education.

Rury, John L. – History of Education Quarterly, 2011
In this article, the author discusses the question of theory as it may pertain to the history of education, with particular attention to the United States.
