Some time ago I posted a link to a short piece of literature in Google Books from 1896 that was making an argument for American students to study in France versus Germany (link below) to Twitter and IHEC Blog's Facebook page and several people enjoyed the posts so I am sharing links below to two historical piece of literature focusing on education abroad:
Should American Youth Be Educated Abroad? In “Education Abroad, And Other Papers” by Birdsey Grant Northrop, LL.D., Secretary of Connecticut Board of Education. New York and Chicago: A.S. Barnes & Co. (1873) at http://bit.ly/fb0kE6 [scroll down a little] or http://bit.ly/ugAqvy
An argument for American students to study in France vs. Germany via the “Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science”, Volume 7 (1896) at http://bit.ly/eI10q7.
