Education in the United States has evolved from a privilege of the aristocracy to a presumed right of all citizens. Educating the entire population effectively and equally is a goal that the nation continues to pursue. The successes and failures of that pursuit over the centuries are recorded in this chronology of the development of education in the United States since 1600.
Appendices to the text provide enlightening statistics such as the numbers of bachelor degrees awarded by gender, the ratios of students to computers and of staff members to students in public school systems, and the percentage of Americans age 25 or older who have completed high school or obtained a GED.
