Access to the Archives: The High School Study

The box currently being digitized in The Ernest L. Boyer Center Archives contains some of the sources, correspondence, and manuscripts related to the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching’s publication High School: A Report on Secondary Education in America.  In 1983, Ernest Boyer and the Carnegie Foundation published a comprehensive study on the state of high schools throughout the country.  The Carnegie Foundation spent more than two years gathering information and conducting interviews and observations in various high schools.  Recently digitized is the entire manuscript of the high school study, dated July 18, 1983.
