Note the false dichotymy.

The meaning of 'liberal progressivist philosophy' can be explored at sites such as the following:

Progressivism
Progressive Education (e.g. John Dewey, Rudolf Steiner, Maria Montessori)
Liberal Education
Liberalism (a political philosophy or worldview founded on ideas of liberty and equality)


See also Martin (1992: 587-8) on 'liberal humanism' here.
