John Dewey and Progressive Education
John Dewey has had a profound influence on education in America. His indelible mark on progressive education is still infused within American higher education to this present day and will likely continue to influence this system in the future. This paper illustrates Dewey’s contributions to tertiary education in the United States by reviewing his various motivations and philosophies for marshaling progressive education while keeping in mind market forces. Although many argue that progressive education permanently transformed the higher education landscape for the better, this paper also illustrates multiple critiques of this unique way of learning.
