John Dewey and "a Paradox of Size": Democratic Faith at the Limits of Experience.
Schutz, Aaron
American Journal of Education, v109 n3 p287-319 May 2001
Dewey hoped that democratic schools could teach students to transform society. Many contemporary educational scholars promote similar visions. Notes the unlikeliness of Dewey's practices of collaboration ever directing such broad efforts of social change. Thus, many visions of democratic education may be misleading regarding the kind of strategies that will be most effective for broad-scale resistance and collective action. (SM)
