School upon a Hill: Education & Society in Colonial New England Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

is the first attempt to portray a view of education that, in the author's words, "enables us to see the educational process if not actually through children's eyes at least from their position in a Lilliputian universe." Its subject is socialization: the ways in which children in colonial New England were educated for life in society--whether it was the family, the church, or the larger community--and what they were taught that transformed them from cultureless newborns into functioning, obedient, and cooperative members of a distinctive society and culture.

Synopsis:

"Provides a provocative new insight into the changing pattern of New England cultural and social history." --
