Book Title: The School and Society and The Child and the Curriculum (Centennial Publications of The University of Chicago Press)
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
Author: John Dewey
This edition brings Dewey's educational theory into sharp focus, framing his two classic works by frank assessments, past and present, of the practical applications of Dewey's ideas. In addition to a substantial introduction in which Philip W. Jackson explains why more of Dewey's ideas haven't been put into practice, this edition restores a "lost" chapter, dropped from the book by Dewey in 1915.
