The Schoolhouse In The City

a book by Alvin Toffler

(our site's book review)

The book discusses the plight of cities and the schools within them, how their problems symptomize the coming of the Third Wave (he used other terms back in 1968), how they’re both worth saving. But living in the past won’t work. “If our society is to complete the transition to superindustrialism [the Third Wave], the city must become a place in which each of our children, of whatever ethnic or economic background, is offered precisely what John Dewey thought important: ‘continual training of observation, of ingenuity, constructive imagination, of logical thought, and of the sense of reality acquired through first-hand contact with actualities.’” (This latter would offer constant lessons in natural consequences—which is often absent today.)

Dewy was writing about a time when relatively large families lived and worked together in rural households. Children got more of the cited prerequisites, above, back then.

(The MCs’ support for direct-self experience, adventuring, natural and (only if needed) logical consequences, kids finding out for themselves like Bucky Fuller and Abe Maslow advocated, the empowerment of choices even in the nurturing area (alternate caregivers), self-esteem, direct self-acceptance, being at cause and not at effect, and being nurtured adequately to support being, self-actualization and autonomy fulfills not just those prerequisites but much more, which is especially important in the context of failing educational systems.
