A Close Look at the People Who Facilitated Educational Change
- Ten Days that Shook the World of Education: A Close Look at the People who Facilitated Educational Change focuses on the critical moments that changed the course of our unique educational experiment. These important incidents reveal how everyday people such as Jean Jacque Rousseau, Joseph Lancaster, Emma Willard, Horace Mann, William McGuffey, John Dewey, W.E.B. DuBois, Horace Mann Bond, Thurgood Marshall, and the kids at Parkland High School did extraordinary things and took a stand against injustice to change educational history. By centering our attention on individuals who faced seemingly insurmountable obstacles and then acted to challenge them, we offer a more personal perspective on what has been called the greatest social experiment of man.
