John Dewey Lives: A Dialogue
Ayers, William C.; Schubert, William H.
Schools: Studies in Education, v9 n1 p7-26 Spr 2012
This dialogue is an edited version of a dialogue between William C. Ayers and William H. Schubert at the November 10-12, 2011, meeting of the Progressive Education Network hosted by the Francis W. Parker School in Chicago, Illinois. It was the opening keynote session on the evening of November 10. Ayers interviewed Schubert, who acted as John Dewey. The keynote addressed the contemporary relevance of Dewey for today's educational issues in general and in particular for the audience of leaders and teachers in progressive schools. Special focus was placed on both extant criticisms of progressive ideas and practices and the relevance and power of Dewey's ideas for improving education, social action, equity, and democracy today.
