In “Work or Love? A Christian Evaluation of John Dewey’s Views on the Purpose of Schooling,” Cimpean states:
Dewey rejects the Christian purpose for schooling, which is to serve and love God. When evaluated from a Christian perspective, Dewey’s progressivism falls short due to its refusal to promote the Christian ideal of serving and loving God. Dewey’s purpose for schooling is to promote a democratic state.
