Center on History and Education
Teachers College, Columbia University
Welcome to the Center on History and Education
Established in 2012, The Center on History and Education encourages new scholarship in the history of education as this rich history is told across local institutions, organizations, and informal settings. Drawing from this research, the Center supports critical inquiry into history education and innovative strategies for teaching history that speak to the lived narratives of students in the K-12 public school classroom. The Center on History and Education has joined, in support of these initiatives, with the Programs in History and Education and Social Studies Education at Teachers College, Columbia University.
Given our place in the nation’s largest, most diverse city, a primary consideration of the Center is to encourage an in-depth look at the history of education in New York City. Our interest is to examine this history from the perspective of the city’s changing neighborhoods, its educational, cultural, municipal, and religious institutions, and the social histories of those who have made New York City their home.
