I've never understood why Charlotte Iserbyt came out against "direct instruction". To the movement in California, this teaching style was simply having the teacher at the front of the classroom conveying knowledge. What's the alternative? I suppose group work, which we viewed as less efficient in most cases. I've never met the dear lady, but knew about this in the 90's.
To Charlotte, this was a very evil indoctrination. I suppose it could be evil if the content was evil. I never understood her meaning.
