Abstract

In this brief critique of the idea of 'best practice', the author argues that good practice is not replicable or uniform; it cannot be reduced to its component parts for replication elsewhere. Furthermore, the criteria for what constitutes 'best practice' are at best unscientific and tend to discourage diversity and local experimentation.
