Dewey and Education in the 21st Century

Fighting Back

This book makes a strong case for the abiding relevance of Dewey’s notion of learning through experience, with a community of others, and what this implies for democratic 21st century education. Curricular and policy contexts in Spain, Cameroon, the US and the UK, explore what reading Dewey contributes to contemporary education studies.
