This text explores the works of three prominent educational scholars - Frederick Rudolph, Bernard Bailyn, Edward A. Krug and Lawrence A. Cremin - and outlines the strengths and failings of their works. This paper suggests that each book, while a substantial contribution to literature on the growth and development of the American educational system, is limited in some way. The paper argues nonetheless, that all of these writers reveal insights and information that is not commonly accessible.

From the Paper:

"The History of American Education has been a long and fascinating one. In a space of less than two hundred fifty years, America grew from a mere adjunct of the British Empire into the most powerful nation on earth. Certainly, America was blessed with a pronounced geographic advantage over its European rivals and it was doubly blessed to have bountiful natural resources as well. But even with that in mind, the American education system deserves at least some of the credit for turning the United States into the world's wealthiest and most influential land."
