SOCIAL RECONSTRUCTIONISM. THE POSSIBILITY OF CONSCIOUS SOCIAL AND PERSONAL CHANGES
Languages of publication
The topic of this article is the recontructionist idea of social change through education. Social reconstructionism is an anthropological and philosophical movement within pedagogy which views education as a way to social change. Reconstructionism was developed in the U.S. in the twenties and thirties of the previous century, taking its sources from progressivism. It enriched the liberal and experimental educational principles of progressivism with far-reaching social goals which should be followed by schools. The most prominent representative of reconstructionism was Theodore Brameld (1904-1987). The main aim of reconstructionism is the development of innovative, socially-oriented education programs which would facilitate the growth in teachers, students, and via them - in the whole society - of the awarness concerning the need for collective co-operation at the local and the global level. One of these programs - called Floodwood Project - is presented in the text.
