Many people today are concerned with the public school system in the US and are raising questions about its effectiveness, focus, and how it is preparing our children. This study examines the roots of public education in America and how its history has shaped the current state of public schools. In particular, this study shows that this history has been based on two central narratives: education grounded in the common good and education based on the American dream. Participants will also consider how the present debate about education reform could influence the future focus of public schools.

Martha Bettis-Gee is Associate for Child Advocacy in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
