Abstract:Accountability and transparency in education are essential if we expect to accomplish its goals. But that statement only highlights the question: What is the purpose of education? Many people would say that the purpose of education is to help prepare students for college and career. But others argue that the goal is to develop critical thinkers who can shape a just and equitable society in order to lead good and purpose-filled lives. There are other goals as well. Progressive education is a movement that has addressed these questions through diverse experiments in a variety of settings and historical eras. This talk considers examples from the US, Turkey, Spain, and Romania in order to articulate what we can learn from those experiments. It calls for adopting a broader conception of education goals as a necessary element of a healthy society. At the least, it calls for examination of the aims of education, rather than uncritical assumption of ends, means, and evaluation criteria.
