Studies in the History of Education

Studies in the History of Education is a foundational area of historical scholarship. It serves to illuminate our historical past to include goals, aims, philosophy, and theoretical underpinnings of education in the broadest terms. The series explores philosophers, writers, and thinkers, whose works contributed to the various types of educational practice endorsed or sponsored by societies world wide. The answer to the fundamental question, “what knowledge is of most worth,” is not universal. Rather, it is dependent upon a number of factors such as local needs and desires, broader physical boundaries of same, and an even larger physical boundary of needs and desires often referred to as national aims and goals for educational practice. That said, the history of education is inextricably linked to the history of mankind in general and to societies in their broadest sense in particular. Most of the contributors to this series focus on educational practice, leaders, theories, philosophies, found in the Unites States and other western societies, albeit, the series is not limited by geography.
