Born in Kittanning, Pennsylvania, Nearing is still viewed as a radical 20 years after his death.

book by Scott Nearing. Scott Nearing (1883-1983) was an American conservationist, peace activist, educator and writer. Born in Kittanning, Pennsylvania, Nearing is still viewed as a radical 20 years after his death. In 1954 he co-authored Living the Good Life: How to Live Simply and Sanely in a Troubled World with his wife Helen.

Best known for his paean to self-sufficiency, Living the Good Life, which became a bestseller that Newsweek called an underground bible for the city-weary, Scott Nearing was also a high-profile public advocate for education reform at the start of the Progressive er. Now the vignettes, interviews, and speculations on school restructuring, curriculum development, and educational reform that he offered in The New Education a century ago are relevant once again.

Progressive education is a pedagogical movement that began in the late nineteenth century; it has persisted in various forms to the present. The term progressive was engaged to distinguish this education from the traditional Euro-American curricula of the 19th century, which was rooted in classical preparation for the university and strongly differentiated by social class. By contrast, progressive education finds its roots in present experience.

Education - Education - Progressive education: The progressive education movement was part and parcel of a broader social and political reform called the Progressive movement, which dated to the last decades of the 19th century and the early decades of the 20th. Pure abstract thinking is still too difficult. Teaching at this stage must be exceedingly concrete and active; purely verbal teaching is out of place. Only after about 12 years of age, with the onset of adolescence, do children develop the power to deal with formal mental operations not immediately attached to objects.

Best known for his paean to self-sufficiency, Living the Good Life, which became a bestseller that Newsweek called “an underground bible for the city-weary,” Scott Nearing was also a high-profile public advocate for education reform at the start of the Progressive era. Lamenting that public schools had failed to keep up with societal changes, Nearing traveled the country during the early decades of the twentieth century, documenting schools that had abandoned a traditional authoritarian stance in favor of child-centered practice. Now the vignettes, interviews, and speculations on school restructuring, curriculum development, and educational reform that he offered in The New Education a century ago are relevant once again.
