Scott P. McDonald - associate professor of science education, Penn State University Park

Book Title: An Elementary School in Holland: Experiment in Educational Practice

Author: Loren S. Barritt

Book Description:

Dr. Loren "Biff" Barritt was one of the faculty members that most influenced my thinking as a doctoral student. He was an educational psychologist and psychometrician by training, but later became a phenomenological research. He had strong working relationships with Paulo Freire, as well as a phenomenological research group in the Netherlands, which provided the context for this book. He profoundly shaped my ideas about the nature of educational research. He was an exceptional scholar and a wonderful man.
