The Progressivist movement of Dewey was very fruitful. That was a child-centered, child-driven philosophy that was supported by the system. The Internet as it functions without adult supervision functions similarly by providing an abundance of resources, in a sense.

But Dewey’s ideals were abandoned around 1940 as the country geared up to enter WWII and hasn’t looked back since, the only leftover bits of Dewey are among School Librarians, oddly enough, unless they’re encumbered by local figures to remove certain books. Oh well. I can’t fix school. I have to tell myself that whenever I start on the subject.
