Samuel, Francis A.; Suh, Bernadyn
Educational Forum, v76 n3 p372-382 2012
What relevance does John Dewey have for students and teachers of the 21st century? Can his educational philosophy be reconciled with "No Child Left Behind" (NCLB) and its emphasis on accountability and high-stakes testing? In this article, the authors discuss Dewey's ideas about the child and the curriculum; delineate how teacher candidates can incorporate these ideas in their teaching; and, finally, suggest ways to reconcile Dewey's philosophy of education with the demands of NCLB.
