This paper presents an overview of British Columbia's (B.C.) educational history, interwoven with descriptions of textbooks.

It identifies four key periods: the establishment of public schools in B.C., the rise of the Progressivist movement in the 1930s and reaction to it, advocacy of Bruner's structure of disciplines in the 1960s, and pendulum swings in philosophic orientations in the latter part of the twentieth century.
