This is the first published biography of Caroline Pratt, an innovative progressive educator who founded the City and Country School in Greenwich Village, New York, in 1914. It provides a feminist analysis of Pratt’s life and work that adds a new dimension to our appreciation of her contributions to progressive education. Learning from Children also shows how an analysis of Pratt’s work can inform our understanding of current critical issues in educational policy and practice. Caroline Pratt’s story will enliven courses on history of education, foundations of early childhood education, and women’s history topics.
