  • John Dewey's most important book on education, Democracy and Education (1916), discusses what Dewey saw as the inherent connection between education and democratic ideals. Since education as a social process has no meaning until we define the kind of society desired, democratic socie ties should seek to cultivate democratic dispositions in children. A democratic education is continuous with the student's experiences, provides opportunities for testing ideas, and is founded on the continuity of experience. For more information, see Dewey (1916/1997).
