John Dewey was one of the most prominent philosophers and educational thinkers of the twentieth century, and his influence on modern education continues today. In Teachers, Leaders, and Schools: Essays by John Dewey, educators Douglas J. Simpson and Sam F. Stack Jr. have gathered some of  Dewey’s most user-friendly and insightful essays concerning education with the purpose of aiding potential and practicing teachers, administrators, and policy makers to prepare students for participation in democratic society.

Selected largely, but not exclusively, for their accessibility, relevance, and breadth of information, these articles are grouped into five parts—The Classroom Teacher, The School Curriculum, The Educational Leader, The Ideal School, and The Democratic Society. Each part includes an introductory essay that connects Dewey’s thoughts not only to each other but also to current educational concerns. The sections build on one another, revealing Dewey’s educational theories and interests and illustrating how his thoughts remain relevant today.

Review:

“Simpson and Stack have produced the best available collection of Dewey’s essays on education. Their volume deserves to be read, and re-read, as a guide to true educational reform.”
—Larry A. Hickman, Center for Dewey Studies “Douglas J. Simpson and Sam F. Stack, Jr.’s volume is an intelligently chosen set of John Dewey’s essays that will be widely useful to all those involved in educational practice, design, leadership, theory-building, and policy-making. Reading Dewey with Simpson and Stack is guaranteed to revitalize anyone’s educational viewpoint.”—Barbara S. Stengel, George Peabody College, Vanderbilt University “If you seek an appreciation of the breadth, depth, and development of Dewey’s thinking about education, and are daunted by the prospect of perusing the thirty-seven volumes of his collected works, then read this book.” —Daniel Vokey, University of British Columbia
