New Xulon Book Points Out Irony in U.S. Public School System
Hagedorn uncovers findings contrary to the history books
MAITLAND, Fla., Aug. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Thomas W. Hagedorn's new book, Founding Zealots: How Evangelicals Created America's First Public Schools, 1783-1865 ($19.49, paperback, 978-1-62509-869-6; $9.99, e-book, 978-1-62509-870-2) tells, for the first time, how evangelical ministers won the very difficult battle to start America's public schools and it exposes the disturbing reasons why other historians have told a very different—and inaccurate story.
"I hope that evangelicals who read the book will come to believe that, like the zealots, passionate believers can make a difference in American culture and society, even in the face of daunting obstacles," states the author. "Evangelicals desperately need to be salt and light and a city on a hill in American society and culture."
Thomas W. Hagedorn has been researching the origins of America's public schools for twenty years. A member of six professional organizations in history and education, he has presented papers at three academic conferences. He earned a B.S. (cum laude) and an M.B.A., both from the University of Cincinnati, and the C.P.A. certificate. The author lives in Cincinnati with his wife, Mary, and they have two adult daughters, Heather and Allison.
