Good overview of the history of public education in the United States, but short on details and specifics. However, very good overview of recent trends like charter schools, vouchers, and privatization.

The companion volume to the four-part PBS television series:

A lively and comprehensive history of public education in the United States, School tells the sweeping, turbulent, and always inspiring story of a great American experiment. Through historical essays, vivid testimony, and hugely entertaining photographs, it shows how the history of American schools in many ways mirrors the history of American democracy.
