Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

According to John Dewey, this landmark in the history of American education illustrates "what actually happens when schools start out to put into practice, each in its own way, some of the theories that have been pointed out as the soundest and best since Plato." Dewey, the distinguished philosopher and Columbia University professor, wrote this classic of World War I-era "experimental" education in collaboration with his daughter. Upon its publication, the book was hailed by The New York Times as "undoubtedly the most significant educational record of the day."

A bold challenge to rote forms of education, Dewey's revolutionary treatise laid the foundation for the progressive movement in education. Hotly debated to this day, his thought-provoking educational theories reject simple memorization of facts and figures to embrace interaction, reflection, experience, and an interest in community. The final chapter, "Democracy and Education," offers a foreshadowing of Dewey's famous book of that name, which appeared the following year. Students, teachers, and everyone with an interest in education will appreciate this volume's value as a record of the development of progressive schools across America.
