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.
