KIRKUS REVIEW

A collection of essays by educational leaders -- the tenth yearbook of the John Dewey society,- evaluating the position and function of university and college administration in a democratic society. Restating the theory that the duty of higher education is to change ways of life to conform to the ideals of such as a society, the authors make general and specific recommendations for the administration of educational institutions with an eye to perpetuating a democratic credo -- with the groundwork concretely placed in the hands of the people served, as far as possible. Pursuing always a fair and intelligent course the administration must be organized on a democratic pattern in all community, faculty, board and student relations, always with the interests of the majority as a starting point. The hows and whys- with an encouraging side volley at the Presidential Man administration and the non-functional deadweight of a vacuous ""rounded liberal education"" policy. Stimulating, controversial material for educators and students.
