Childs, John L.

John L. Childs - 1959
Education, for John Dewey, was neither a luxury nor a mere adornment; it was rather a life necessity. It is through education, he perceived, that each child achieves his distinctively human attributes, and it is also through education that a society perpetuates and deliberately modifies its ways of living. Thus intentional education turns the human enterprise into a moral enterprise, and the educational task of organizing and communicating experience should be regarded as a fundamental human responsibility.

John L. Childs - 1957
A discussion of The Challenge of Soviet Education—a book from which one can gain indispensable knowledge of what the Communists have been about during the past four decades.

John L. Childs - 1957

John L. Childs - 1954
The author describes certain of the basic choices involved in the pragmatic theory and practice of education.

John L. Childs - 1954

John L. Childs - 1953
A discussion of Professor Bode. In the death of Professor Bode, both American democracy and American education lost one of their most resourceful interpreters.

John L. Childs - 1952
An introduction to the classic print issue of TCR that celebrates William Kilpatrick's eightieth birthday.

John L. Childs - 1949
John Dewey’s philosophy of education can best be understood when we see the cultural factors which permeate his whole philosophical point of view.

John L. Childs - 1949
The task of forming the curriculum of the American school is a genuine part of the larger task of forming a new world. For a general survey of the problem in its main outlines, this discussion is organized around five basic propositions. Each of these propositions is accompanied by one major implication or corollary for our view of the curriculum.

John L. Childs - 1947
American democracy is now in a critical period. It is to be hoped that American Catholics may sense the problems their present educational policies are creating, and that they will move to re-examine and revise their position. He who weakens the public school weakens American democracy at a time when it needs its full strength if it is to be equal to its tasks at home and abroad. He who opposes federal aid for public education weakens the spiritual resources of our country.

John L. Childs - 1943
We fight for a chance to build a better world, a world in which this horror that now engulfs us cannot happen again. The primary interest in this discussion is with this objective.

John L. Childs - 1943
Since the turn of the century, pragmatism, or experimentalism, has played an important part in the development of American thought and education. Seldom in the whole course of Western history has a new philosophical orientation exerted such an immediate and pervasive influence in the intellectual, political, and educational affairs of its society.

John L. Childs & George S. Counts - 1943
Current staff publications.

John L. Childs - 1943
Confronted with urgent and divergent requests from both the military and the civil branches of the Federal Government for the cooperation of the schools in the national war effort, a group of teachers, school administrators, parents, social workers, and representatives of governmental agencies having special concern for the educational program for youth, met in open forum at Teachers College to consider the implications for education of a nation at war. The conference is discussed in this article.

John L. Childs - 1942
If democracy is to win this war, it must also win the peace. That means putting at the head of all of our directing governmental agencies leaders who share the longing of the common man for a world of peace, abundance, and security. To get that kind of result from the war will require basic changes in our attitudes and relationships in our dealings with the people of the East. These changes are discussed.

John L. Childs - 1941
SIDNEY HOOK IS ONE OF THE ABLEST OF THE YOUNGER group in American philosophy. He has the habits of mind of an operationalist and is ever alert to test theories by what they come down to in ordinary experience and practice. His remarkable ability to state the cultural and human significance of developments in the more technical aspects of philosophy makes him a particularly suggestive writer for educators engaged, as they are, in the deliberate guidance of the thought and behavior of the young.

John L. Childs - 1940
This is the second in a series of articles exploring the meaning and significance of terms, which are important in thought and speech at the present time. This is not an attempt to present one authoritative "definition" which must be accepted by all. Rather, the emphasis is on securing a clear-cut statement of one informed person's understanding of each word so that in light of it, the concepts held by others may be challenged and clarified.

John L. Childs - 1938
DR. BODE'S RESPONSE to my review of his book on progressive education raises questions about the meaning of democracy and of the functions of American education which merit further discussion. On the whole, his article tends to bring our positions somewhat closer together. In my reply I shall state what I understand to be our agreements, and what I mink are still the most important issues between us.

John L. Childs - 1938
PROFESSOR Bode believes that all is not well with progressive education. He contends that its "attitude of superstitious reverence for childhood" has prevented its adherents from developing a sound interpretation of the function of education in a democratic society. This sentimental devotion to the child "has betrayed the child and deprived him of his birthright. He grows up in society, but he really does not belong to it. He finds himself in a civilization that is being rocked to its foundation, without knowing what he is for or against." In short, "progressive education stands at the parting of the ways." If it persists in its present one-sided emphasis, "it will be circumnavigated and behind."

John L. Childs - 1937
The liberal tradition can end only in futility if it indefinitely evades judgment on powerful movements, which today are striking at some of the elementary values of civilization. Fascism, in my opinion, is one of these movements. Both its philosophy and program contradict the very values for which liberalism itself stands. No educator who is loyal to the liberal tradition can be indifferent about the advance of Fascism in the modern world.

John L. Childs - 1937
THIS is an important book for teachers. Science is now a fundamental part of the school curriculum, but Dr. Reisner apparently believes that we have failed to carry through the ethical and intellectual reconstruction, which is involved in this commitment to science.

John L. Childs - 1936
In a recent article, Harold Laski of the London School of Economics examines the social ideas of liberal American educators as presented in the Report of the Commission on the Social Studies of the American Historical Association.

John L. Childs - 1936
IN HIS article last month Professor Dewey called on educators who believe in an experimentalist philosophy to state definitely what they mean by a class orientation for American education.1 I am happy to respond to his request. In my opinion the relation of educators to the present struggle of classes in the United States constitutes a problem of growing importance. It merits more serious thought from the members of the educational profession than it has as yet received.

John L. Childs - 1936
IT is apparent that liberal educators who have many common elements in their social and educational philosophies differ sharply on the problem of class-conflict. Recent articles on the subject in The Social Frontier have even suggested that no genuinely empirical and liberal thinker can accept a class interpretation of American society.

John L. Childs - 1936
This penetrating discussion of the social ideas of leading American educators combines effectually the topical and biographical methods of historical analysis.

John L. Childs - 1935
SERIOUS students of American education have long since learned to give careful attention to the writings of Professor Boyd H. Bode. For several decades his lucid and penetrating analyses have helped to clarify and enrich the thinking of educators on a wide variety of topics. It is inevitable therefore that those who have gained so much from him on other subjects should study with care what he has to say about the function of the school in the present confused and divided state of American society.

John L. Childs - 1934
IN his Democracy and Education, Dr. Dewey suggests that one of the best ways to probe into the inner meaning of social and philosophic theories and disputes is to apply the educational test of significance. A difference in theory, which does not make some concrete difference in educational practice, is a formal difference, he contends, with little life-significance. The truth of Dewey’s contention is illustrated by this report, which briefs the findings of the five-year inquiry of the Commission on the Social Studies appointed by the American Historical Association.
