Description
This prize-winning book analyzes the origins and development of Central High School, the first public high school in Philadelphia and a model for secondary schools elsewhere. Using Central as a case study, David F. Labaree argues that the American public high school is the product of the struggle between egalitarianism and meritocracy that is endemic to a democratic society.
