From Dewey to Beane, Innovation, Democracy, and Unity Characterize Middle Level Education.
Kienholz, Kevin B.
Middle School Journal, v32 n3 p20-24 Jan 2001
Discusses connections between the critical theory of John Dewey and the agenda of the middle school movement, noting that both attempt to infuse a traditional, authoritative institution with innovation, democracy, and unity. Considers Dewey as a catalyst for ideas that brought about middle school reform, and the need to synthesize past and present to create a vision of the future. (JPB)
