Doug Morris Posted October 14, 2022 Report Share Posted October 14, 2022 Different meanings of "progressive education". Ayn Rand drew a sharp distinction between the Montessori method (good, because it developed children's cognition) and progressive education (bad, because it did the opposite). I just looked up progressive education on Wikipedia. Wikipedia presents the concept as a broad umbrella that includes the Montessori method and the Boy Scouts. It is always important to clearly understand what we are referring to, for both clear thinking and successful communication. This is all the more true when different meanings are assigned to the same term. I am vaguely aware that there has been a lot of controversy over progressive education, but have not studied the issue. Would anyone like to offer any thoughts?
