Experiments in Democratic Education: Dewey's Lab School and Korczak's Children's Republic
Engel, Liba H.
Social Studies, v99 n3 p117-121 May-Jun 2008
For democracy to thrive, students increasingly need to participate in democratic education. During the first half of the twentieth century, two education reformers individually developed, refined, and implemented two different forms of democratic education. In this article, the author describes the purpose of public schooling and how John Dewey and Janusz Korczak implemented social studies within the Laboratory School and the Children's Republic, respectively.
