The Westland School is a private elementary school founded in 1949 by Lory Titelman, and Marie H. Briehl. The guiding philosophy of the School is based on the concepts of John Dewey and Progressive education, a pedagogical movement that began in the late nineteenth century. The Westland School Collection broadly documents a re-emergence of the progressive education movement, focusing on its development between 1949 and 2014 in Los Angeles, California. The collection consists of documents, photographs, publications, scrapbooks, and video recordings that focus on the history and daily life of administrators, staff, and students.
