Dewey entre los autores mas perjudiciales

Via Jenny D. encontré ésta exposición que casi transcribo en su totalidad por considerarla sensitiva y a la vez importante. J. Dewey ha sido uno de los autores mas leídos en Educación durante la última centuria, pero por qué su libroDemocracia y Educación es perjudicial(y para quien deberian preguntarse). He aquí la transcripción:
"Dewey, in his early work at UMich and U of Chicago, wrote extensively about the linking of curriculum and content to teaching. Yes, he urged educators to consider the child in the equation, meaning that you couldn't simply beat knowledge into children but actually needed them to participate. But he also said that subject matter was important, and that there were better and different ways to teach different disciplines. He called for a science of teaching, and thought it should be based to some extent on the discipline being taught. educators read only the child-centered part of his work, and that became the mantra of progressives and constructivists. The folks Diane Ravitch blasts in her book Left Back: A Century of Failed School Reforms. And when Dewey wrote Democracy and Education in 1916, he had the opportunity to rein in the progressives who were running off with half-baked ideas about his work.

Dewey didn't do that. In fact, he backed off from his original theories of content and pedagogy, and dove headfirst into the notion of child-centered education, of science-less teaching. He abandoned his idea that pedagogy and content were wedded, that teachers had to know their material and know how to teach it. Instead, it was all about the child, what the child wanted to know. The child led the teaching, rather than the content."

Joanne Jacobs tambien escribe al respecto.

Y usted que sabe de Currículo y Pedagogía, qué opina?
