This study describes two experimental schools that existed on either side of the Atlantic at the turn of the century. Doctors John Dewey and C.N. Starcke had no connection beyond identical academic backgrounds: Dewey was at the University of Chicago, and Starcke at the University of Copenhagen. Likenesses between the two free schools may be set against a background of the 21 educational themes created by Rousseau in his "Emile", which may have been the common inspiration between them. Direct studies of Dewey's Laboratory School are scarce, and the author uses primary source materials here to compare the two schools.
