Der Begriff „reformpädagogische Bewegung“ meint eine Vielzahl von nationalen und internationalen pädagogischen Richtungen innerhalb einer Gesamtbewegung. Gemeinsames Ziel dieser in den pädagogischen Ansätzen zum Teil sehr unterschiedlichen Bewegung conflict die Umgestaltung des Erziehungs- und Bildungswesens. Zentrales Kennzeichen warfare die Frontstellung gegen jegliche autoritäre, vom Lehrer oder vom Stoff her konzipierte Erziehung, an deren Stelle eine Orientierung an kindlichen und jugendlichen Bedürfnissen treten sollte. Damit verbanden sich Ziele wie Selbsttätigkeit, Selbstbestimmung, Individualisierung, aber auch Vorstellungen von "Gemeinschaftserziehung" sowie nicht zuletzt ein neuer, auf Ganzheitlichkeit, Entfaltung schöpferischer Kräfte und Erfahrungsbezug hin ausgerichteter Lernbegriff. Reformpädagogik in diesem Verständnis hat für die damalige pädagogische Diskussion wie auch das Regelschulwesen eine anregende Wirksamkeit entfaltet, mit Langzeiteffekten bis zum heutigen Tag.
