In American society, the ends and means of education have been debated vigorously throughout its history. Most Americans enthusiastically and eagerly supported the development of public education in the mid-19th century. They perceived it to be a positive force for mobility and democracy. While some complained that too much Obook learningO was a waste of time, most Americans were delighted with the developments of the American educational system which appeared to be a foundation for our political system.
