One of the most prolific scholars and philosophers of the 20th century, famed TC Professor #JohnDewey was born on this day, October 20th, in 1859. As a psychologist and education scholar, Dewey was best known for his advocacy for progressive education and child-centered experiential learning. Nearly 70 years after his death, Dewey continues to serve as a symbol in our community of the innovative work that TC does best. If you happen to pass his bust today in Zankel Hall, be sure to wish him a happy birthday. #TCWay
