“Progressive Education” has come to mean many things to many people, but as an early 20th-century concept it implied a rigorous adherence to certain fundamental principles. This session will trace the through-lines from the John Dewey era to our own time and help current practitioners understand and take pride in this powerful tradition of student-centered, experiential, relevant, and democratic learning and teaching. Let’s reclaim Progressive Education for what it is, what it can be, and especially for its potential as a countervailing force against some of today’s ugliest and most pernicious trends.
