How have Americans educated each other? The methods and aims have varied over time and have differed across gender, race, religion, and geography. Formal education took place primarily in schools and universities, which remain our central mechanisms for creating and disseminating ideas, values, and knowledge. But Americans also learned in a wide array of other institutions (including museums and libraries) and in different media (such as newspapers, television, and the internet). This new book series will explore the plurality of American education, casting new light on the practices that have shaped this enormously diverse nation.
