Reformophobia: Belittlement before Arrogance
Pinskii, Anatolii
Russian Education and Society, v46 n3 p24-41 Mar 2004
According to John Holt, "It makes no sense to waste effort on school reform, because the school is absolutely unreformable; those who still harbor any illusions in this regard remind one of people who try to bail water out of a boat full of holes." This author, however, attempts to refute Holt's thesis, claiming that the main question and challenge is whether Russia will be able to enter the postindustrial information-based society, and whether education can be restructured on the basis of the paradigmatics of a postindustrial, information-based society. (Contains 1 table and 21 notes.)
