This is the most important book on education written in the twentieth century. Indeed, it is as important as Plato's Republic and Rousseau's Emile. I first read this in 1963, and my paperback copy has disintegrated from constant wear. I just downloaded this kindle and read the book from start to finish for the first time in a half century. I was completely blown away.

The centennial of the publication of this book will be celebrated in 2016, and i will be in charge of the centennial event. So I felt i had to know the book inside out. In reading it from cover to cover I found it to be incredibly well-organized and tightly argued. Anyone with a serious interest in American schools should get this one under their belt.

Tp me John Dewey is an educational hero. He saw years and years before our time what we are beginning to realize about education now. I look at education now as a factory type assembly line. Open head - input knowledge- close head - spit out knowledge - go on to the next grade. The information age makes it essential for us to teach our students how to think. Yes some pieces of information are expected as commmon knowledge, but couldn't we widen our vision and teach to the child instead of to the book?

I used this book as a reference when writing my thesis for my MEd. The early educational theorists are an important addition to the basics of education in the USA. It is a good book for an education major to include in their reading list.

Dry and kind of difficult read. For the Constructivist. Only read it because it was required for a pre-service teaching prep class. Some good nuggets though
