International Handbook of Progressive Education
Keywords:Educational alternatives, progressive education, educational theory, educational practice, neo-liberalism, Dewey.
Comprising a collection of journal articles and papers, this long book considers the role that progressive education can and should have in the twenty-first century at a point in which national systems of schooling are beset with neo-liberal notions management and efficiency. Drawing on a range of perspectives and examples â€“ from within the past as well as from a range of different countries in the present â€“ the various authors make a case for the importance of individual transformation and for the development of active and questioning global citizens. Schools are of course central to this but so too are other settings, many of which are included in the wide-ranging discussions found here
