'We live in an era of attacks on the public schools and school teachers; in recent years we have listened instead to politicians, billionaire philanthropists, business leaders, and tech titans! But, PROFESSOR John Dewey, an education psychologist perhaps America’s most famous education philosopher, published a short, readable education creed in 1897. Compare it to the ideas and principles that underpin today’s public education policy. His thinking directly confronts what is happening in our schools driven by high stakes test and punish—charter schools dominated by no-excuses compliance—schools with unworkable ratios of students per teacher—schools oriented to college-and-career prep. Imagine how different our schools might be if school teachers who have studied the philosophy and psychology of education were trusted by the education committees in Congress and across the statehouses.'
