American Presidents and Education

By Maurice R. Berube | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

I am much obliged to a number of people in the preparation of this study. Professors Dwight Allen, Jane Meeks and Raymond Strangways of Old Dominion University were helpful. Dwight Allen shared his manuscript on a national system of education, Jane Meeks furnished leads on the education of Southern blacks and Ray Strangways, on economics.

Others have contributed in myriad ways. Dr. Mary T. Piana has been a supportive friend and a wise counsel for over a decade. Librarians at Old Dominion University and Norfolk State University were exceptionally cooperative. Dawn Hall proved a patient and conscientious typist. Special thanks to my editors at Greenwood Press: Mildred Vasan, senior editor; Arlene Belzer, production editor; and Carol Lucas, copyeditor.

Finally, I want to express my gratitude to the twenty respondents to a purposeful sample mailed to fifty experts on educational policy on the question of a possible constitutional amendment on a right to education. These include: Dwight Allen, Professor of Educational Reform, Old Dominion University; Stanley Aronowitz, Professor of Sociology, City University of New York; Terrel H. Bell, Professor of Education, University of Utah and former U.S. Secretary of Education; Chester E. Finn, Jr., Professor of Educational Policy, Vanderbilt University, and former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Education; Susan Eagleton Fuhrman, Professor of Political Science, Rutgers University; Bernard Gifford, Professor of Education, University of California at Berkeley; Herbert Gintis, Professor of Education, University of Massachusetts at Amherst; Marilyn Gittell, Professor of Political Science, City University of New York; Nathan Glazer, Professor of Education and Sociology, Harvard University; Gerald Grant, Professor of Education, Syracuse University; Samuel Halperin, former U.S. Assistant Secretary of
