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…

The college accreditation movement that arose at the turn of the twentieth century had an important antecedent in the Society for the Promotion of Collegiate and Theological Education at the West.

Osborne, Ken – History of Education Quarterly, 2016
After the First World War, the League of Nations, through its International Committee on Intellectual Cooperation, attempted to reshape the teaching of history in its member states.

Odugu, Desmond Ikenna – History of Education Quarterly, 2016
Mainstream historiography often turns to Europe's era of empire building to explain the expansion of Western formal education in Africa.

Maher, Brent D. – History of Education Quarterly, 2016
The National Defense Education Act (NDEA) of 1958 was the first federal investment in low-interest student loans and became a precedent for expansion of student loans in the Higher Education Act of 1965. In its controversial loyalty provisions, the NDEA required loan recipients to affirm loyalty to the U.S. government. Between 1958 and 1962,…

Wong, Ting-Hong – History of Education Quarterly, 2016
Focusing only on education exchanges between the United States and other countries, existing scholarship fails to illuminate how American-sponsored student migrations between other countries helped expand U.S. hegemony. This article attempts to rectify this limitation by looking at Taiwan's policies on overseas Chinese students (qiaosheng) in the…

This article explores how education reformers in California pioneered forms of centralized educational governance between 1850 and 1879.
