A Progressive Education Reader
Educators, citizens, and policy-makers would benefit from remembering two salient truths.
- We stand on the shoulders of giants.
- “Every problem in education has been solved somewhere.” (Bill Clinton)
For those reasons, I have finally finished curating a seminal collection of progressive education texts for an anthology entitled, “Dreams of Democratic Education: An Anthology for Educators Wishing to Stand Between Children and the Madness.” The eBook contains full texts by Ferrer, Dewey, Patri, The School of Barbiana, Malaguzzi, Papert, Lakoff, and a guy named Stager.
We hope to be able to help organize book clubs, discussions, and courses built upon the eBook’s contents in the future.
Veteran educator Dr. Gary Stager is co-author of Invent To Learn — Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom and the founder of the Constructing Modern Knowledge summer institute. Learn more about Gary here.
