The Eclectic Education Series (EES) is a set of textbooks which from roughly
1865 to 1915 WAS education in the United States, almost exclusively. They were the standard textbooks in many states and
were chosen independently by over 10,000 school boards as their standard textbooks.
The EES covered every topic. Some of the series are still household names almost a hundred years after
they ceased being used. These include McGuffey's Readers and Ray's Arithmetics. There were many other
extraordinary series in the EES such as Pinneo's Grammars,Thalheimer's
Histories and Norton's Sciences that were used by countless students.
The books provided schools with a brand they could trust - the EES. The authors commissioned to do the various
line of textbooks were at the top of their fields. No expenses were spared in preparing these
incredible textbooks. Original art was commissioned
for them, they were typeset with extraordinary care. They were refined and honed through multiple revisions
over decades. And they all taught using the same basic principles. As an added bonus, they were often keyed
off the cornerstone of the series, the McGuffey Readers, so that a book might say "Use with the 3rd Reader"
to give some indication of its intended proficiency level.
The result? A hundred million students
in one-room schoolhouses got first-rate educations using the EES - and went on to build and shape America. People like Theodore Roosevelt,
who once made the public statement that he did not propose to become a "Meddlesome Matty." This allusion was
perfectly clear to the millions of people who used the McGuffey Readers at any time after 1853.
So why did the United States stop using them? It is a sad story: After WWI, John Dewey, the head of the
Teachers College at Columbia University launched an all-out campaign to "reform" education. Dewey was a humanist, a
socialist, and an atheist. He saw the McGuffey Readers and the entire EES as threats - they emphasize patriotism, traditional values, and the
Bible. Dewey believed, in his own words, that public schools
should be the "State established church." Dewey viciously attacked the textbooks of the day as
"antiquated" and he was able to successfully bring about their demise, as well as the demise of quality
