A History of the Public Schools of North Carolina

By M. C. S. Noble


The story of public education in North Carolina is told by one who himself performed yeoman service in the cause. The author is inspired with an unshakable belief in the genuine will of North Carolina to educate her people in spite of war, reconstruction, and occasional regimes of short-sighted and politics-inspired economy. Originally published in 1930.
