We believe that education is the reorganization and reconstruction of life experiences. Education must be the beginning of individual freedom. This means that an individual should be able to think critically, analyze situations in their personal life and in the society, be an active member in the society and be able to bring about positive social change and reform. This must begin at an early age. We believe that schools should be used as agents of change in the society. By giving students appropriate educational experiences, DEWEY creates a better life for her students and thus for the society.
