Red Alert!: Educators Confront the Red Scare in American Public Schools, 1947-1954
Typically referred to as the -red scare- or -McCarthy- era, the period from 1947 to 1954 proved particularly exacting for educators in America's public schools. "Red Alert " details the profound impact that the red scare had on educational policy and practice as well as examines professional educators' cautious response to anti-communist repression. In particular, "Red Alert " focuses on the work of the National Education Association's Defense Commission and its singular, and often fruitless, efforts to thwart red scare attack."
