Society, Schools and Progress in the U.S.A is one of a mutually supporting series of books on Society, Schools and Progress in a number of important countries or regions. The books in the series are arranged in a fairly uniform pattern. They all begin with the historical and institutional background. They then go on to describe administration, the school system, family influences, and background social forces in much the same order of progression. The series is intended to serve students of sociology, government and politics, as well as education. This book deals with the specific case of the United States of America. It considers the American contribution to world-wide expectations. It examines how the American debate is no longer about the neighborhood school—it is about the American nation's identity and purpose, about efficiency in the least reorganized yet biggest industry. It analyzes the various aspects of American schools, school practices, students, teachers, teaching, and learning. It discusses how the American public school ideal has prevailed to be an inspiration and conceptual model for mankind.
