Abstract

John Dewey was the most influential philosopher of education in America. His famous work Democracy and Education has produced tremendous influence on education in the world since its birth in 1916. This paper, based on current literature, attempts to present Dewey’s perspectives on democratic education, analyze the present educational situations at traditional schools, and discuss the corresponding curriculum and instruction for Dewey’s model of democratic education. It is expected that this paper can bring some insights into the current educational reform in the world.
