Democracy and Education contends that education should operate by including social relations of democracy and the individual's growth and development. It indicates the importance of democracy attached to the individual's life that serves as a shield of protection for the individual and preserves social equity. The debate is introduced from the well-versed perspectives of social-interactionist theory.
We are very honoured to invite Deweyan scholars from all over the world to give keynote speeches on Dewey's concepts on democracy and education: Professor Jim Garrison, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University; Dr. Stefan Neubert, University of Cologne; Professor Chen Ya-Jun, Dewey Centre of Fudan University; and Professor Shan Zhong-Hui, East China Normal University. Our founder, Professor Rex Li also delivered a speech.
