Summary
"In this history of "the gospel of education," W. Norton Grubb and Marvin Lazerson reveal the allure, and the fallacy, of a longstanding American faith: that more schooling for more people is the remedy for all our social and economic problems and the central purpose of education is preparation for the workplace."--Jacket
