 About the Book 

Schools and Students in Industrial Society examines the birth of modern education and its effect on the development of France, Japan, and the United States after the industrial revolution. The text outlines issues of coeducation and the growth of state-sponsored schools in three countries, highlighting commonalities and differences among them. Extensive primary documents - ranging from government propaganda to school childrens memoirs - give students the opportunity to make their own historical comparisons. Headnotes to the selections, illustrations, questions for consideration, an extensive bibliography, and an index are also included.
