Francisco Ferrer Guardia
The origins and ideals of the Modern School — Escuela moderna
I have not yet read this author and his book, but I want to note their name and merit before I get rid of the commitments of everyday life.
This is Francisco Ferrer Guardia
What strikes me when reading the life of this educator in a summary way is his persistence in following a perspective that we can call objective, that is, oriented to universal values that are of interest and echo up to today.
I don’t know the details of his perspective, but the echo that resounds from his life is that of a timeless and international commitment.
When asked where the idea of creating the Modern School came from, he replied: simply from my childhood school, but doing exactly the opposite.
Another author comes to mind whose pedagogy I have read:
A. Lobok, E. Matusov, Alexander Lobok’s work on probabilistic dialogic agencybased pedagogy, in “Journal of Russian and Eastern European Psychology”, 50, 6, 2012, special issue.
For my review on his text:
Different people, geographies, and times and yet a human truth to be defended through a critical, open, free education.
