Shaona Williams's curator insight, December 21, 2015 7:20 AM

As an educator myself I really believe in  John Dewey’s Educational Philosophy, which manifests that, It is of paramount importance to form public opinion through education. I think that, education and learning are social and interactive processes, and thus the school itself is a social institution through which social reform can and should take place.
