In his advocacy of democracy, Dewey considered two fundamental elements--schools and civil society--as being major topics needing attention and reconstruction to encourage experimental intelligence and plurality. Dewey asserted that complete democracy was to be obtained not just by extending voting rights but also by ensuring that there exists a fully formed public opinion, accomplished by effective communication among citizens, experts, and politicians, with the latter being accountable for the policies they adopt.

Dewey's The Child and the Curriculum contains an influential and remarkably clear account of how dualisms or false distinctions arise, how they can be taken up by different sects and so become the focus of opposing viewpoints, and how the dualism eventually can be dissolved and the dispute resolved; the account is illustrated by reference to the 2 schools of thought that oppose each other about the nature of the curriculum.

I used this book as a reference for my thesis. John Dewey's classic education theories are the foundation of much of today's school curriculums. I have a Masters of Education and I truly believe from actual classroom experience that the older methods are better. Back to basics would turn around the nation's failing school system. I recommend reading this for anyone who wants to learn essentials of teaching children so that they can understand and use what they are being taught.

I don't mind the markings on the side and under words. It doesn't make it difficult to read. However, the scan is a poor quality, resulting in words that are faded beyond the point of being legible and about 75% of the letters 'c' and 'e' are not distinguishable.
