Nodding my head at what you’re saying here. As I will clarify in my next post, the process model relies heavily in our faith in the judgment of teachers as practitioners who understand their own context better than any outsider. you lose control when you do that, but you can potentially gain so much more learning, of you empower those teachers enough. Well, what about the lazy ones, some say? The ones who’ll slacken without the outcomes? It’s not the right question, because it was assuming that outcomes were actually producing good learning in he first place!
(Am slightly confused about what they do at your son’s school, though… “Model citizen” and “moral scolding” sounds like indoctrination & some form of character education rather than praxis in the Freirean sense?)
