The imperfect panacea; American faith in education, 1865-1965 by Henry J Perkinson( Book )

22 editions published between 1968 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This short history of American Education examines our nation's peculiar faith in the power of its schools to solve its various social problems. Focusing mainly on the post Civil War period, it shows how our early public school system was used in an attempt to solve such problems as racial inequality, urban decay, unemployment, and nationalization. It also shows how later problems such as overpopulation, AIDS, environmental pollution, drugs, automobile safety, crime, and cultural discrimination have been put on the school's agenda. In a new concluding section, Professor Perkinson discusses why the public schools have not solved these broad social problems and why they should not be expected to do so

The research question was how did Thompson design his Journal of Negro Education editorials during the period 1932 to 1941 to reach the primary and secondary audience? Content analysis and historical analysis were the research methods. The 41 Journal editorials that Thompson wrote between 1932 and 1941 were the sample. The study examined Thompson's editorial content for the presence and frequency of data regarding, for example, educational inequality, educational reform, social reform, litigation and the NAACP litigation campaign. Data regarding the Journal design, audience and public policy research also were subject to analysis. Approximately 227 subcategories were subject to analysis using the qualitative software QSR NUD*IST
