Beech, Jason; Rizvi, Fazal – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2017

Guthrie, Gerard – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2017
The student-centred, progressive paradigm has not had sustained success in changing teacher-centred, formalistic practices in "developing" country classrooms.
