The ideas upon which public education was founded in the last half of the 19th century were wrong. Despite their continued dominance in educational thinking for a century and a half, these ideas are no more right today. So argues Kieran Egan, an educational theorist, in this study. Kieran Egan explains how we have come to take mistaken concepts about education for granted and why this dooms our attempts at educational reform.
