AUTHOR

Kaestle, Carl, Foner, Eric

SUMMARY

Pillars of the Republic is a pioneering study of common-school development in the years before the Civil War. Public acceptance of state school systems, Kaestle argues, was encouraged by the people's commitment to republican government, by their trust in Protestant values, and by the development of capitalism. The author also examines the opposition to the Founding Fathers' educational ideas and shows what effects these had on our school system.Kaestle, Carl is the author of 'Pillars of the Republic Common Schools and American Society 1780-1860', published 1983 under ISBN 9780809001545 and ISBN 0809001543.
