Aims of Educationp. xxii
Democracy in Education,n++The Elementary School Teacher(December 1903)1n++These three motivesn++of affection, of social growth, and of scientific inquiryn++must prove as nearly irresistible as anything human when they are once united. And, above all else, recognition of the spiritual basis of democracy, the efficacy and responsibility of freed intelligence, is necessary to secure this union
The American High School Today(McGraw-Hill, 1959)6n++Three things are necessary to have a good high school, provided that it is of sufficient size: first, a school board composed of devoted, intelligent, understanding citizens who realize fully the distinction between policy making and administration; second, a first-rate superintendent; and third, a good principal
General Education in a Free Society(Harvard University Press, 1945)13n++General education must consciously aim at these abilities: at effective thinking, communication, the making of relevant judgments, and the discrimination of values
Progressive Education at the Crossroads(Newson & Co.,1938) 21n++The philosophy of progressive education implies a challenging philosophy of social organizationn++. This implicit social ideal has been lost sight of, or has had only superficial consideration, by many exponents and adherents of the progressive movement
Schooling in Capitalist America(Basic Books, 1976)27n++A revolutionary transformation of social life will not simply happen through piecemeal change.

One reason has to do with loving our children. Another has to do with the possibility that there will be an increase in opportunities for empowering the young with the skills and habits of literacy.n++ Conceptions of Schooling, Teaching, and Learning 37
Dare Progressive Education Be Progressive?n++Progressive Education(April 1932)38n++If life were peaceful and quiet and undisturbed by great issues, we might, with some show of wisdom, center our attention on the nature of the child. But with the world as it is, we cannot afford for a single instant to remove our eyes from the social scene
The Social Frontier(November 1938)43n++There is a growing realization that the social implications of education must receive more serious consideration than has been given to them in the pastn++. What is required of progressive education is not a choice between academic detachment and adoption of a specific program for social reform, but a renewed loyalty to the principle of democracy
Teacher in America(Little, Brown and Co., 1945)49n++Education is indeed the dullest of subjects and I intend to say as little about it as I can. For three years past, now, th
