Homeschooling and History: link
The link below should take you to a series of transcripts (which I have only scanned but which look interesting) provided by the Homeschool Legal Defense Association. The transcripts are a discussion about the history of dissent in American Education, and the interview starts at the earliest colonial times and moves forward in history.
The speaker is: "James C. Carper, a professor of Social Foundations of Education in the Department of Educational Studies at The University of South Carolina, where is has been a faculty member since 1989."
He has also written several books.
