How Has Dewey's Democratic Theory Influenced the Development of a New Primary School? A Headteacher's Perspective
Higham, Rupert; Biddulph, James
Education 3-13, v46 n4 p385-392 2018
This article provides the transcript of Dr. Rupert Higham (University College London, Institute of Education) in conversation with Dr. James Biddulph (Headteacher of the University of Cambridge Primary School). Among the topics discussed are: What the University of Cambridge Primary School (UCPS) motto, "Releasing the Imagination: Celebrating the art of the possible," means to Biddulph; how space impacts the pedagogy and culture of a school; how ideas from John Dewey's "Democracy and Education" have influenced Biddulph's thinking, if at all; the impact of research on UCPS; and if the UCPS approach to Primary Education is counter cultural in the current climate.
