The Liberal Arts and Progressive Education

by John G. Pilley - 1939

ALTHOUGH Professor Adler begins his article on "The Crisis in Contemporary Education" in THE SOCIAL FRONTIER for February by handing out a few bouquets to the men and women who have been responsible for recent developments in American education, it becomes increasingly clear as one reads on that he thoroughly dislikes everything they stand for. His especial dislike is for those developments in education that have been inspired by the ideas of John Dewey. Like many opponents of the New Deal, he begins by praising that which he would like to make an end of, and then proceeds to attack a gross misrepresentation of it. Progressive educators will certainly find it difficult to recognize themselves in the picture Professor Adler draws of them.
