      Power's book is ultimately neither especially idealistic nor very much of an education, except in the gulf between morality and moralism, between political virtue and political virtú.

      This popular book provides future teachers a solid foundation in the history of American education, from its roots in European tradition, through the colonial period, to the challenges of the twenty-first century. The authors again organize material simply and logically, and present it in the readable, accessible format readers appreciate. Here are all of the important people, places, dates. We want The New York Times to be a place where educators, students and parents can join a vigorous conversation about the best ways to educate people, whether children or adults, to motivate them.
