Introduction Today, many educators argue that education should be democratic in order to function social relations and the growth of development of the individual. Nearly, hundred years ago John Dewey (1859 - 1952) argued for this in one of his well - known book titled “Democracy and Education” which was written in 1916. In this book one of his main argument was, that democracy is a necessary way of living together to protect individuality and maintain social harmony. According to John Dewey the aim of education is to formulate the young people to participate fully in the democratic society. This intention can be accomplished by cultivating certain skills like critical thinking, focusing on student needs, participating students in the democratic life and inculcating values in the young minds of the school itself.

Philosophy of Education My philosophy of education is made up of the purpose of education, the curriculum and methods, the role of a teacher and about the students’ role. The philosophy is made up from experiences and from a famous philosopher named John Dewey. He inspired me and has allowed me to take control of my teaching and transform my teaching into a reality. The main idea of his philosophy is the belief that the relationship between the individual and society is vital to each student. School is to be a place where education occurs based on principles of mental activity and on the processes of growth (Schofield, 2012, p. 146).
John Dewey is an arguably the most influential thinker on education in the twentieth century. He wrote a book “Thinking in education”, where he described thinking as an experience. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, thinking is an internal mental process that uses information as input, integrates that information into the previous learned material and the result may be knowledge. Experience is practical knowledge, skill, or practice derived from direct observation or participation in events or in a particular activity. John Dewey was an advocate of practical education and supported the long term effect rather than short one.
