The Society-Centered Curriculum book
By the 1930s, the progressive educational movement had split into two distinctly different camps, one focused on the individual child as learner and the other focusing on the society at large as educational laboratory. The latter group viewed young people as idealistic: ready and capable of reforming society if the proper curricular leadership were provided. This meant a curriculum that reaches out beyond the classroom walls, into the community where students and teachers could change the world.
