Welcome to The State of Education in America, presented by One-Room Education.
Thank you so much for joining me today for the inaugural episode of The State of Education, presented by One-Room Education! My name is Katie and I’ll be your host. In today’s episode, I’ll be discussing a Brief History of Education in America. We’re going to be cover topics including:
- The evolution of the education system in America started in the late colonial period right through the modern day.
- The historical restrictions on who had access to education in America and why.
- The roles of men and women in education throughout American history
- The role of the student in the American education system and how that has changed over time.
My intention with this episode is to give you a background of why the modern education system is the way it is and what my views are as to how it needs to and can be reformed.
