The Democratic Concept in Education
By John Dewey
Dewey focuses on the natural development of the human beings. His views are that there should be more democracy in education. He thinks that Democratic Education should be allowed in schools, if the schools are unequal then the education will always be unequal. To make the general set of ideas applicable to education practice, it is therefore, necessary to come to closer quarters with the nature of present social life. The idea of education as a freeing of individuals capacity in a progressive growth are directed to social aims. Dewey considered being the father of education opened a few of these democratic schools. He states that such a society must have a type of education which gives individuals a personal interest in social relationship and control, and the habits of mind which secure social changes without introducing disorder.
