  • Conant's Fight for Better Teaching

    Not since John Dewey has anyone made such, a sustained and provocative survey of American, education as has James Bryant Conant in his book-by-book analyses of our public school system this past decade. To evaluate Dr. Conant’s assessment of the teacher’s training we have called on Merle Borrowman, professor of education and of history, who after a lifetime of teaching in schools and colleges is today chairman of the department of educational policy studies at the University of Wisconsin.
