Our Enlightened Education
By Robert Beaudine
The home schooling industry is enjoying a surge in popularity. Because of the time, effort, and additional expense involved, this prompts the question: Are more parents exploring this option because our public educational system has failed? This article will examine the progressive reforms of John Dewey and his fellow “Frontier Thinkers,” and the fundamental changes that altered the underlining purpose of our public education. This article will show that our public educational system has not failed. It has succeeded – brilliantly so – based upon the covert change in the ultimate purpose of public education.
John Dewey (1859-1952) was a progressive thinker. He was a philosopher, an educational reformer, and a prolific writer. When you read Dewey’s writings, it is obvious that John Dewey was also an ardent socialist. This explains why he became the president of the League for Industrial Democracy in 1939. This was the socialist American counterpart to the socialist British Fabian Society. In 1950, he was named the honorary national chairman.
John Dewey published “My Pedagogic Creed” in 1897. Here he set his primary goal to be the destruction of the child’s individualism. This would enable the child to conform and get along with the group no matter what group he joined, especially that noble group called “citizens of the world.” Dewey had learned that it is difficult to produce good international socialists out of nationalistic-minded individualists.
All of Dewey’s early experimental schools were dismal failures, but he was forward thinking and not dismayed. In 1904, he went to Columbia University’s Teacher College to teach and write and experiment. There he schemed with other educational tinkerers called the “Frontier Thinkers.” At the forefront were Dr. George Counts, Dr. Harold Rugg, Dr. William Scott Gray, and Dr. Arthur I. Gates. Together, they destroyed traditional education and replaced it with their progressive reforms.
