Kliebard, Herbert M.
University of Wisconsin, Madison
HERBERT M. KLIEBARD is a professor at the University of Wisconsin—Madison in the departments of curriculum and instruction and educational policy studies.

Herbert M. Kliebard — 1999
Accounts of the rise of the liberal arts as an educational ideal usually begin, quite appropriately, either with the glories of ancient Greece or the revival of learning in Europe which we have come to call the Renaissance. While these time-honored beginnings of a kind of education that is supposed to exalt the human spirit and express many of the central values of western civilization have much to tell us about how that venerable ideal of education came to prominence, they are less illuminating on the question of how it fell into a kind of undeclared disfavor.

Herbert M. Kliebard — 1988
The idea of a liberal education as a basis for general education in American schools is alive—but barely. The incorporation of science and other "moderns" into a conception of the liberal arts was not, in itself, sufficient to maintain its place in general education. Even the "new" liberal arts competed rather unsuccessfully with a conception of a curriculum that was seen as directly tied to the real business of life. While the liberal arts curriculum maintained its status as an ideal suited to a social (or at least an intellectual) elite who had the leisure to pursue it, a general education tied to efficient performance of life's tasks predominated for the many.

Herbert M. Kliebard — 1988
I should like to offer four hypotheses that could account for the occurrence of cyclical change in curriculum affairs as it is commonly observed. The first has to do with a boundless expansion of the scope of the curriculum in conjunction with direct and immediate utility as the supreme criterion of success. Second, because the rhetoric of reform is usually more powerful than the opposition, a reform is inaugurated without the accompanying structural changes in the system that are needed in order to make it succeed. Third, the changes themselves do not so much take the form of one curriculum ideology actually replacing another as they do a resurfacing of a temporarily submerged position in the light of favorable social and political conditions. And finally, rapid changes in curriculum fashion are related to the rise of a professional class of school administrators whose professional status and perhaps even their survival depend simply on being at least as up-to-date as the school system down the road.

Herbert M. Kliebard — 1987
In responding to Tanner's book review, the author discusses why he thinks John Dewey’s curriculum work remained largely confined to the world of ideas and had relatively little impact on school practice.

Herbert M. Kliebard — 1985
Over a period of several years two main traditions have dominated the way in which American education has been seen and interpreted. The older tradition has been to focus on the story of how American education expanded from elitist traditions, borrowed largely from Europe, to encompass the great mass of children and youth in the United States. American education, from this perspective, is the story of a gradual transformation from a selective and class-biased system to one much more in harmony with popular American democracy. In general, the data for this story are drawn from the ever-increasing numbers of students who were entering the schoolhouse doors. It is, in one sense, a very dramatic story, the story of an experiment in mass public education extending at least to secondary schools—an experiment that many people would insist is still under way and where the results are still inconclusive.

Herbert M. Kliebard — 1984
"Humanism," John Dewey once remarked, "is a portmanteau word. ''l It packs together a variety of meanings, some drawn from its origins in fifteenth- and sixteenth-century Italy, some from its association with literature, particularly classical literature, some from its alleged opposition to theology, and, in more recent times, from its antiromantic and antinaturalistic temper. On its education side, it has come to be associated with a set of subjects, a segment of the school curriculum, believed to have the power to stir the imagination, enhance the appreciation of beauty, and disclose motives that actuate human behavior.

Herbert M. Kliebard — 1982
Discusses the tragic deaths of two of John Dewey's young sons and his eventual meeting and adoption of a crippled Italian boy, Sabino, who became an important part of Dewey's life. Sabino eventually became the only Dewey child to carry on work in elementary education as a teacher in progressive schools and as a designer of educational equipment.

Herbert M. Kliebard — 1972
The curriculum is likened to: 1) The means of production where the student is the raw material; 2) A greenhouse where students grow and; 3) A guided and companionable road over which students travel.

Herbert M. Kliebard — 1965
Much of our current thinking about curricular issues entails our newest catchword, "structure of the disciplines." In this analysis, the author identifies some overlooked dangers in this provocative idea and argues for full attention to such other considerations as human relevance in determining what shall be taught in our schools.
