Conferences, Lectures, and Forums of the John Dewey Project

An objective of the John Dewey Project, as described in the Mission Statement, is to "sponsor conferences and forums on the theory, practice, and future of progressive education and on contemporary educational issues".  Each fall, the John Dewey Project honors John Dewey's birthday, October 20, with an event that bridges Dewey's theories with current educational challenges.
