Taira, Derek – History of Education Quarterly, 2018
This article explores the efforts of Native Hawaiian students to appropriate and take control of their schooling as part of a broad Indigenous story of empowerment during Hawai'i's territorial years (1900-1959). Histories of this era lack a visible Indigenous presence and contribute to the myth that Natives passively accepted the Americanization…

Students in the early republic commonly stitched, drew, and painted maps of their states, nation, and world as part of their educations.

Tamura, Eileen H. – History of Education Quarterly, 2017
During the mid-1960s, the War on Poverty ushered in a change in outlook on the poor and stimulated Neighborhood House (a social service agency that began as a settlement house) to focus on educative, community-building initiatives. Yet ironically, while staffers offered educational programs for residents, they were themselves becoming educated.…

This article explores citizenship's multiple meanings in Los Angeles by describing five different types of Americanization, or immigrant education, in the city of angels from 1910 to 1940.

Scribner, Campbell F. – History of Education Quarterly, 2017
The following article documents the expansion of high school exchange programs during the Cold War.

Nemeth, Julian – History of Education Quarterly, 2017
Sidney Hook set the terms of debate on Communism, higher education, and academic freedom in the postwar United States. His view that Communists lacked the independence necessary for teaching and research--a view forged in the heated debates of New York City's radical left in the 1930s--provided the rationale for firing Communist professors across…

Amsterdam, Daniel – History of Education Quarterly, 2017
This article reconstructs the story behind "Freeman v. Pitts" (1992), one of the main US Supreme Court cases that made it easier for school districts to terminate court desegregation orders and that, in turn, helped to propel a widely documented trend: the resegregation of southern schools. The case in part hinged on the question of…

Casalaspi, David – History of Education Quarterly, 2017
The 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) was one of the most significant legislative accomplishments in twentieth-century American politics.

Rasmussen, Chris – History of Education Quarterly, 2017
New Brunswick High School, which had been racially integrated for decades, became majority-minority (and soon, all minority) in the 1970s, after years of legal wrangling led hundreds of its students to depart for a new, nearly all-white high school in the adjacent suburb of North Brunswick. White suburbanites invoked "local control" to…

Beauvais, Clémentine – History of Education Quarterly, 2017
This article focuses on teachers in the discourses of early twentieth-century proponents of intelligence testing in America. Teachers were often a targeted enemy in the academic literature on intelligence testing--their methods belittled, their unreliability emphasized. Yet, in part because teachers were essential for intelligence tests to be…
