Changing Education at Episcopal High School over the 20th Century

Through this independent study, I explored how education across the United States, and specifically at Episcopal, has changed over the past 100 years. I started this project because, as a fourth generation student at Episcopal, I wondered just how different the Episcopal experience was for my great-grandfather compared to mine. I explored the course catalogues to track most of the changes, using the catalogue for this upcoming year, 2018-2019, and then the catalogue every ten years prior to track the major changes of the school. For primary sources, I used databases such as JSTOR to find older articles discussing American education, and then compared those to each other, along with my experiences today.
