Two very different educational paradigms
I just re-read a fantastic book by Thomas Armstrong, The Best Schools, published by ASCD. I love how he differentiates between what he calls "Academic Achievement Discourse" and "Human Development Discourse". The former refers to the predominant obsolete content-based paradigm; the latter refers to an alternative approach based on "the developing needs, interests, and abilities of the students." Mr. Armstrong goes on and elaborates on the 8 assumptions underlying each one of these two paradigms.
