'School and Society' is a book written by John Dewey, a philosopher and educator, in 1899. In this book, Dewey advocates for a more progressive and democratic approach to education that emphasizes the importance of practical learning and social experience.

Dewey argues that traditional education, which focuses on rote memorization and standardized testing, fails to prepare students for real-life situations and inhibits their ability to think critically and creatively. Instead, he suggests that education should be based on the interests and experiences of the students, and should involve hands-on activities and problem-solving exercises.

Furthermore, Dewey believes that education should not be isolated from society, but should be integrated into the community and reflect the values and needs of the society. He asserts that education should help students develop social consciousness and promote democracy by encouraging cooperation, tolerance, and social responsibility.

Overall, 'School and Society' is a seminal work in the history of education, as it paved the way for the development of progressive education, which continues to influence educational theory and practice to this day
