Searching for a Prophet: The Naive State of Education as a Science.
OSSC Bulletin, v22 n7 Mar 1979
Like other social sciences, education has not yet established widespread consensus concerning its own elemental truths. Seeking absolute solutions to the problems of education under such conditions is futile, frequently resulting in the rejection of the good aspects of educational concepts when those concepts fail to meet expectations as educational cure-alls and are replaced by the next popular conception. The most promising and responsible approach to solving these problems is to encourage variety and eclecticism in the hope of constructing a broad base of knowledge from which a truly scientific educational theory can eventually be developed.
