Humanistic education

Redirected from Educational humanism

Humanistic education is an alternative approach to education based on the principles of Humanism, most notably Abraham Maslow[?]'s hierarchy of needs and the work of Carl Rogers. The whole person, not just the intellect, is engaged in the growth and development that are the signs of real learning. The emotions, the social being, the mind, and the skills needed for a career direction are all focuses of humanistic education. Schools based on Humanistic education include Summerhill School in Leiston, Suffolk; Sudbury Valley School in Framingham[?], Massachusetts; and the New School in Montreal, Quebec.
