Dewey's laboratory school: lessons for today

Laurel Tanner examines closely the practices and policies of Dewey's Laboratory School from its inception to the current day. There are extensive excerpts from the school's teachers' reports and other original records, and the volume provides a wealth of practical guidance on how schools today can introduce Deweyan reforms the way they were originally, and successfully, practised.
