Trask-Kerr, Kylie; Quay, John; Slemp, Gavin R. – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
Dewey's vision for schooling can perhaps be described as an early positive education, a term now attributed to programmes derived from positive psychology.

Although there has been considerable debate in contemporary literature on the erosion of the public good in higher education, most of it has been concentrated on the word 'public' rather than on the notion of 'good'.
