In science education, there has been a frequent assumption that development is a kind of inevitable unfolding and that one must simply wait until a child is cognitively ready” for more abstract or theory-based forms of content. In other words, through maturation with age, children will achieve certain cognitive milestones naturally, with little direct intervention from adults. Many science educators and policy makers have assumed that the power and limitations of children’s scientific reasoning at different grade levels could be derived from the stages delineated in the cognitive developmental literature. In this view, developmentally appropriate” education would thus require keeping instruction within these bounds.

The Polish authorities presented and discussed with the PSF panel of experts the strengths and weaknesses of the Polish R&I system and the rationale behind the PSF Peer Review which will form an important background for the forthcoming reforms of Higher Education and Science. The reforms will be based on three pillars proposed in the new Strategy for Higher Education and Science: Constitution for Science, Innovations for the economy, and Science for You The operational recommendations tackling such issues as models of higher education institutions and their evaluation, career development of researchers, links between the higher education sector and the other actors of the innovation system as well as the internationalisation of the science and higher education sectors, will be released by the PSF panel in September 2017.
