Abstract

This research examines the path of education reform across the American South during the Progressive Era, a period of time that spans from the 1890s to the mid-1920s. Specifically, this research attempts to locate the pattern of reform within the overall outline of the Progressive Era. Historians disagree on the causes, and composition of the Progressive movement. By examining school reforms across the South, and the precedents set by schools in the North and West of the United States that inspired Southern education reform. This study serves to place education reform within the organizational synthesis, one of the general schools of Progressive history that argues that reforms were caused by an increase in the size and number of national organizations that promoted a bureaucracy increased in size.
