Feb. 25, 2014 - PRLog -- Publishing’s popular Images of America series Education in Albuquerque.  This new pictorial history by local author Ann Piper, with a foreword by Dr. Ernie Stapleton, boasts more than 200 vintage images chronicling education in Albuquerque.

Education in Albuquerque highlights the fibers that weave the unique tapestry of New Mexico’s politics, culture and population movements that result in a fascinating history of education development in the state. Images displayed throughout the book reveal exciting facts about the development of Albuquerque’s multifaceted schools.  Author Ann Piper features public, private and church-based schools in the area to show the wide range of education systems in the area. She also shares the story of how Albuquerque as a city and as a school system is one of a few unique large urban areas that maintained unified boundaries without splitting into multi-faceted systems.

The founding, unfolding and evolution of educational systems in Albuquerque creates an intricate story regarding public, private and parochial schooling—as well as regrettably ill-founded systems that wronged natives.

Highlights of Education in Albuquerque include:

•The story of John Milne, superintendent of Albuquerque Public Schools from 1911 through 1955.
•The explosion of Albuquerque’s post-World War II population and the burgeoning school growth that resulted.
•A portion of the profits from the sale of the book are being donated to the Albuquerque Public Schools Foundation.
