About the Author

David B. Tyack (1930-2016) was Vida Jacks Professor of Education, Emeritus, and Professor of History, Emeritus, at Stanford University.


This brilliant and readable book opens a variety of new perspectives on the development of public education in this country...Tyack does the most responsible, nonsentimental social history yet seen, and I think it highly likely that readers will find themselves educated, enlarged, and excited by what he says. -- Maxine Greene * Today's Education *
