Biography/History:
LaatsAdam: Adam Laats is Associate Professor of Education and History, Binghamton University (State University of New York).
Summary:
The idea that American education has been steered by progressivism is accepted as fact by liberals and conservatives alike. Adam Laats shows that this belief is wrong. Calling to center stage conservatives who shaped America's classrooms, he shows that in the long march of American public education, progressive reform has been a beleaguered dream.
