5.0 out of 5 stars A view of liberal education
Dewey was a very significant contributor to educational theory, especially in the United States. He is less well known in the UK and he deserves a more prominent position.

This review is from: Experience and Education (Kappa Delta Pi Lecture) (Paperback)
Dewey was a very significant contributor to educational theory, especially in the United States. He is less well known in the UK and he deserves a more prominent position. This book summarises his later view on education and the relationship to experience. It presents his reflections on developments in progressive education and tries to answer his critics. It is concise and clear and for once in education theory jargon free and it should be read by anyone who is involved in the educational system.

An absolute must for any teachers, student or qualified, that want to critically engage with the curriculum they deliver to their pupils. Genius from Dewey.

I am studying at college and have found the book by John Dewey extremely useful. Even though he is dead and wrote the book in the 30's it is still relevant today. Very enjoyable and very enlightening.
