Democracy is a fairly new concept in human history. The new management model created with the demands of the society as a result of the pressures of the traditional authorities has also affected the social life. In addition, democracy, which permeates all institutions of social life, has also been an important element that shapes education. After the democratization of societies started, the democratic education model aimed to raise people suitable for this situation. For this, educational processes were designed within the framework of this understanding, starting from the philosophy of education, to lectures and assessment and evaluation. John Dewey, who had a great influence in the first half of the 20th century, pioneered the democratic education model. Within the framework of his ideas, democratic education was shaped and has been continuously developed over 100 years and has been designed to meet the needs of societies.
