Progressive Education in Eretz-Israel in the Years 1915-1939: A Model for Development of New Educational Theories in a Changing Society.
Reshef, Shimon
The history of progressive education in Eretz-Israel (Palestine) from 1915-39 is intended as a model of a new pedagogical theory adopted by a changing society. Topics discussed include the Jewish community in Eretz-Israel, pedagogical experiments, progressive education as a pedagogical movement, the relationship between school and society, the role of the educator in progressive education, and learning characteristics peculiar to progressive education. The paper describes and evaluates the alliance between progressive concepts in education and the Labour Movement. Two basic assumptions are offered: first, this alliance is encouraged if the basic pedagogical concepts are in agreement with the ideals guiding the society; second, creation of new man-centered social order encourages an open atmosphere in which concepts such as progressive education are acceptable. Against this political and social background, progressive education developed through three stages: (1) educational experiments which attempted to initiate pedagogical experiments elsewhere; (2) the pedagogical movement resulting from a dynamic interaction between the school and its social environment; and (3) an educational system characterized by the dependence of school on society as a whole. References are included. (Author/DB)
