ABSTRACT
The article presents an essay about a conflict between Deweyan Progressivism and English Teacher Education. During the second Center for Excellence in Education (CEE) Leadership and Policy Summit in 2007, the English teacher educators assembled there were asked why Deweyan Progressivism and their support of it is mistrusted and considered as foolish. It relates a story in order to demonstrate how the conflict is embedded in the mind of many English teacher educators and researchers.
