Developmentalism: An Obscure but Pervasive Restriction on Educational Improvement.
Stone, J. E.
Education Policy Analysis Archives, v4 n8 p1-29 Apr 1996
Developmentalism is an educational doctrine that presumes natural development to be optimal and requires that teaching practices overcome a presumption that they interfere with an optimal developmental trajectory. It actually impedes efforts to hold schools accountable for student achievement in that it rejects or ignores research on best teaching practices. (SLD)
