Professor of Education
I was first attracted to the history of education after taking a Greek course at Divinity School. I enjoyed it so much that I enrolled in several more Greek and Latin language courses. Knowing vaguely that in centuries past nearly all formally educated European and North American children had studied classical languages, I wondered what happened. I enrolled in a course in the history of education to find out. I did find out, and along the way discovered a discipline I loved. For my doctoral dissertation I wrote a history of historical writing about education. In more recent years I have continued my scholarly interest in historiography and have also published a bit on the education of American Indians and a lot on the history and present state of homeschooling in the United States.
