DEWEY ON SCHOOLS AND DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY

Posted By: Robert Pearse on October 22, 2002
 
As a UC PhD who took many ed psych courses from Bloom, Sherman and Prescott and who did his dissertation on the
American Federation of teachers vs the National Education Association, we need to look at the realities of inner city schools and education in industrial nations welfare state systems for what they are

Reality-Using Warner and Redfield's cultural anthropology approach to education systems. Inner city public school systems as currently operating seem incapable of teaching
children the skills they will need to survive and thrive in tomorrow's Information/Learning Age

A systems analysis of why this occurs is needed to analyze the different low performance aspects of inner city education, plus a look at how social change strategies might "unfreeze" the present morass and allow the introduction of more effective futures oriented new systems
