Goddard, Connie – Education and Culture, 2019
John Dewey and W.E.B. Du Bois were prominent critics of how vocational education programs were often used to restrict rather than enhance student aspirations. An overview of the Bordentown Manual Training and Industrial School for Colored Youth (1886-1955) suggests that it met requirements both men articulated for the right kind of vocational…

Eastman, Nicholas J.; Boyles, Deron – Education and Culture, 2015
This essay situates John Dewey in the context of the founding of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) in 1915. We argue that the 1915 Declaration of Principles, together with World War I, provides contemporary academics important historical justification for rethinking academic freedom and faculty governance in light of…

Jones, Anne G.; Risku, Michael T. – Education and Culture, 2015
To satisfy the demands of society, the scholar-¬≠practitioner in today's complex world of education must juggle various factors that are related to one another: practice, poiesis, or the creative act, culture, knowledge, and learning. These demands include adherence to education, law, politics, economics, ethics, equity, and social dynamics. The…

Gaudelli, William; Laverty, Megan J. – Education and Culture, 2015
The perceived importance of a global experience in higher education is hard to underestimate. University presidents are known to boast of their "percentage," or the proportion of undergraduates who study abroad. At least part of the rationale is a cosmopolitan one: an essential part of being acknowledged as educated derives in part from…

Labaree, David F. – Education and Culture, 2014
In this 2013 John Dewey Society Lecture I examine the history and the structure of the American system of higher education. I argue that the true hero of the story is the evolved "form" of the American university and that all the things we love about it, like free speech, are the side effects of a structure that arose for other purposes.…

Rodriguez, Victor J. – Education and Culture, 2013
From 1915 to 1923, the pedagogy of John Dewey became an important pillar of anarchist and socialist projects of education in Mexico.

Thayer-Bacon, Barbara – Education and Culture, 2012
I explore Montessori's story in terms of her initial warm reception by America to her educational research, and her later cooling off, once Dewey's student, Kilpatrick, published The Montessori System Examined and declared her work to be based on psychological theory that was fifty years behind the times. I argue that there is a troubling gendered…

Dorn, Charles; Santoro, Doris A. – Education and Culture, 2011
Most historical scholarship on John Dewey's 1924 educational mission to Turkey has focused on the degree to which the educator and philosopher's recommendations were actually implemented. By bringing the disciplinary lenses of history and philosophy to bear on Dewey's mission, this collaborative study differs from previous work by illuminating the…
