More Information about John Dewey:

By 1928 John Dewey was famous enough to make the cover of Time magazine… Dewey’s most lasting influence, however, was exercised personally and directly as professor of philosophy at Columbia University since 1904. Teachers College of Columbia, with which Dewey was associated, is the largest in the country. Of the 23,631 students at the University in 1950, over a third, 9,032, were enrolled in Teachers College, training twice as many teachers and educational administrators as any other college in America.

Dewey didn’t merely teach the teachers. He taught those who taught teachers and administered educational programs. This year is the 125th anniversary of Teachers College, and on the admissions page it states it is the oldest and largest education graduate school.

Even by the 1950’s the disastrous results of Dewey’s philosophy were being seen in the classroom. … Dewey’s influence is still felt today through the numerous organizations he helped found or lead, including the First Humanist Society of New York, the American Civil Liberties Union, the NAACP, the League for Industrial Democracy (originally the Intercollegiate Socialist Society), the New York Teachers Union, the American Association of University Professors, the New School for Social Research., the New York Teachers Guild, the International League for Academic Freedom and the Committee for Cultural Freedom.1 February 15, 2013.
