Harris, Charles R.  
From Apathy to Awareness: The Contributions of Willard Hall to Delaware Education
 Picture
Publisher: Dorrance & Company, 1968 Philadelphia, PA.
Book. Book condition: Very Good to Near Fine. Very Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "Judge Willard Hall's contribution to the public school system of Delaware in the nineteenth century are not likely to be known in an age which takes the advantages of modern education for granted. And yet he was a significant pioneer in his century's movement to provide free education to a growing populace which needed this indispensable requisite for advancement in a progressive society. From Apathy to Awareness fully documents the educational concerns of a typical Eastern state towards the middle of the last century. A thoroughgoing study, the book shows to what extent young America was in need - often dire - of the most basic educational necessities. This was a time when private schools provided the chief opportunity for personal advancement and when schools for the economically deprived were pitifully lacking in qualified teachers. What Willard Hall achieved, through his own influence and together with those dedicated to his goals, in numerous conventions leading to important legislation, is the dramatic and heartening story of these pages. In a time when American education is undergoing another major crisis, From Apathy to Awareness will be welcomed as an inspiring exemplum by those who see more reasons for dismay than hope on the contemporary scene." 103 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD to NEAR FINE condition. Dust jacket is in VERY GOOD or better condition.
