Democracy and Education

by John Dewey

John Dewey knew a hundred years ago what we should be practicing today. This book should be mandatory reading for every school board member and politician that has confused high stakes testing with quality educational reform.

Dewey addresses the needs of the "invisible children" that our current spate of educational reforms has failed to recognize.

Democracy and Education is written in a style that is surprisingly readable and is filled with suggestions and observations that make it a very topical book.
