Forming a Philosophy

A philosophy or a plan or a guide of education.

Philosophies of Education

  • Progressivism- views goals as dynamic and evolving and emphasizes that learning should be experience-based and relevant to students’ lives.
  • Essentialism- suggests that a critical core of information exists that all people should possess, schools should emphasize basic skills and academic subjects, and students should master these subjects.
  • Social reconstructionism- sees schools and other social institutions in need of restructuring, with marginalized people and their works elevated to more prominent positions in the content of schooling.
