Review: Experience and Education

User Review  - Josiah DeGraaf - Goodreads

Dewey brings in some good critiques of the educational practices of the day. But he goes too far in his solution as well. That being said, this is a good book to read to understand some of the educational theories and practices that are popular today. Rating: 2.5-3 Stars (Okay). Read full review

About the author (1963)

John Dewey was born in 1859 in Burlington, Vermont. He founded the Laboratory School at the University of Chicago in 1896 to apply his original theories of learning based on pragmatism and "directed living." This combination of learning with concrete activities and practical experience helped earn him the title, "father of progressive education." After leaving Chicago he went to Columbia University as a professor of philosophy from 1904 to 1930, bringing his educational philosophy to the Teachers College there. Dewey was known and consulted internationally for his opinions on a wide variety of social, educational and political issues. His many books on these topics began with Psychology (1887), and include The School and Society (1899), Experience and Nature (1925), and Freedom and Culture (1939).Dewey died of pneumonia in 1952.
