Booker T. Washington's Educational Contributions to Contemporary Practices of Sustainable Development
Grant, Brett G.
Open Review of Educational Research, v1 n1 p144-159 2014
This article discusses Booker T. Washington's educational contributions to contemporary practices of sustainable development. In particular, the article looks at Washington's contributions in the areas of economic sustainability and entrepreneurship, character development, and aesthetics. As states continue to contemplate and evaluate the value of an economy based on principles of sustainable development, Washington's education of the hands, the head, and the heart will probably become increasingly significant. A look at how such education was perceived and practiced in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries is therefore invaluable.
