John Dewey was an American philosopher and known as the father of experiential education. During the year of 1916 filled with the industrial revolution and the first world war, Dewey wrote his book Democracy and Education. Which is a philosophy of education that describes the process that occurs between a teacher and student that infuses direct experience with the learning environment and content. High schools today are preparing citizens to achieve Dewey’s vision by guiding them to their interest, having lessons pertaining to current events, and should engage students. A good curriculum should contain current events that correlate to living among each other and observations that develop ideas and beliefs. Depending on the school you attend and where the people who attend come from the education can either be practical or more refined. Baldwin states “Now, the crucial paradox which confronts us here is that~at the whole process of education occurs within a social framework and is designed to perpetuate the aims of society” (pg.201). We live in a society that is still oppressive towards minorities and white privilege still exists.As someone who has experienced different forms of schools from preparatory to magnet I have observed that curriculums are being formulated differently. While preparatory schools give more rigorous classes’ magnet schools are more well rounded in different studies as to fit all students, which has proven to work better in teaching. We have different styles of learning from each and everyone of us. This allows for a more well rounded society where people can learn from each other. High schools are preparing students for the social world by guiding them toward their interest as opposed to forcing them to fit inside a certain stereotype based on who they are. Emerson states “every young man and woman is born with some determination in his or her nature, and is a potential genius”. their knowledge will grow.High Schools give students a chance at life that prepares them for what is to come into society. Giving group projects, which connect two or more peers who could be friends or just acquaintances, opens them up into a world of experience into someone else’s life. High schools are the ground for experience to happen with all walks of life. Experience cannot taught by a teacher you have to let people experience things for themselves.I believe high schools are preparing students and citizens to achieve Dewey’s vision. As a way of using experience so that a person learns based on what they want to gain from a task. Education and democracy interacting together to create a society where everyone is not placed under a stereotype of what they look like or based on how they learn.
