Summary or Abstract : Though much scholarly work has been dedicated to New England Transcendentalism over the past century, it is odd that little attention has been paid to its participants' roles as educators, a gap in scholarship that is especially hard to understand because many of the well-known participants in this movement had jobs as school teachers. This project is an attempt to fill that gap and offers a broad discussion of Amos Bronson Alcott's, Elizabeth Palmer Peabody's, Ralph Waldo Emerson's, Henry David Thoreau's, and Margaret Fuller's multifaceted interests in and concerns with American education. At the same time, it shows that each of these Transcendentalists, in their work as educators, developed very distinct pedagogies that were quite divergent from those employed in the 19 th -century common schools, which were championed by lawyer turned educational reformer, Horace Mann..
