abstract
Education is constantly slowly evolving. In The United States we tend to forget the past. The educational system in the United States can be divided into two rough categories one being classical education and one being progressive education. Progressive education is a product of the Progressive era 1870-1920. This portion of the United States saw the end of the Civil War and the complexities of reconstruction. Important factors that influenced educational change were social classes, social evolution, and the second industrial revolution. This paper uses textual research to Include Karl Marx, John Dewey, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and many contemporary authors who have formulated their opinions on the roots of progressive education. I suggest the emergence of noticeable social classes and success of communist philosophy allowed educational reform. Education then became a means of upward mobility. I also suggest that Charles Darwin and On the Origin of Species, enlightened politicians to social control. Education then could become a means of producing productive citizens for an evolving society. Lastly the specialization of occupations during the industrial revolution was necessary for profitability and so education specialization and the industrial revolution worked cooperatively for reform.
