The Just School: A Developmental Context for Social Education.
Scharf, Peter
The paper explores two efforts to create a Just Community School using Kohlberg's theory of moral judgment as a guide towards definition of educational aims. The paper notes that developmental theory may lead to two rather different legitimate implementation models and notes some interim observations from the two schools. One of the models implemented emphasizes coordinated natural social and humanistic course which encourages students to interact and cope with external realities. The second model adopts the developmentalism implied in Kohlberg's theory wherein development is the only legitimate aim of education, suggesting that the end product of education should be the growth of the child's "natural, intellectual, and moral capacities."
