Fast and Curious : A History of Shortcuts in American Education Paperback
This book examines four types of shortcuts in the history of American education--streamlined paths to vocational success, cultural sophistication, college credentials, and the efficient use of English.
The chapters profile Norman Rockwell, the Harvard Classics, Cliff Notes, speed reading, a Doctor of Arts diploma for college teachers, and other riveting examples of time-savers that attracted millions of ambitious Americans since the late 19th century.
