John Dewey (October 20, 1859 – June 1, 1952) was an American philosopher, psychologist and educational reformer whose ideas have been influential in education and social reform. Dewey was an important early developer of the philosophy of pragmatism and one of the founders of functional psychology. He was a major representative of progressive education and liberalism.

"They know that I was too nervous to give speeches in high school... that there are songs that make me cry."
"I also think it is necessary to share personal stories with students in order to better connect with them. This opens the door to the possibility that they might discover something about themselves in my tales. My students know of my successes and failures, my shining moments and my embarrassments, and my weaknesses and my strengths. They know that I was too nervous to give speeches in high school, that I succeeded as a distance runner even though my coach didn’t think much of me, that there are songs that make me cry, that I make mistakes..."

I feel so fortunate to live in a time (and a place) where options like this exist for people like us who straddle the line between WANTING their kids to have a religious experience and feeling uncomfortable with THE religious experience. We do not have to believe in organized religion to respect and learn about Judaism...

Race to Nowhere Theatrical Trailer (Original)- This incredible documentary demonstrates what's wrong in today's school systems and with kids' micromanaged schedules- not enough time to play, to think, to just be a kid.
