100 Years of Democracy and Education: A Critical Examination

Featuring Neal McCluskey

There is, perhaps, no bigger name in American education than John Dewey, and he wrote, arguably, nothing more influential than Democracy and Education, which turns 100 years old this year. How has the book held up over the century, with its prescription for schools to use children's natural inclinations to both educate them and unite diverse people? How educationally and socially effective have those ideas been, and how lasting their influence? Join us as we reflect on 100 years of this seminal work.
