The International Movement in Progressive Education
WHILE MOST of the schools and personalities so far considered have been British because the main focus of this book is upon England, schools in Germany, France, Holland, Switzerland, and the United States of America have been mentioned and men and women from many nationalities have rightly come into the foreground at different points. Because educational innovators have been such individualists and because they have been engaged in creating schools by teaching and living with children, they have not had the time, the energy, or the desire to create strong and powerful national and international movements. The New Education Fellowship is the most representative example of the progressive movement in education over a period of nearly fifty years.
