alfie kohn: online lecture

240By Self-portrait (Wikipedia:Contact us/Photo submission) [CC-BY-SA-3.0 ], via Wikimedia CommonsJoe Bower links to an Alfie Kohn lecture up on the web, also available here.  Not to be missed if you haven't heard Kohn. He covers grading, age-segregation, and how standards are not just ineffective but actually dumb us down, proven by the data.  Also, how completely traditional schools are still.  The knowledge revolution of the 20th century has barely touched the schools. And the Listerine theory of education. The evils of ranking. Educational malpractice and how politicians who are fundamentalist reformers are wrecking the schools.

If you haven't heard Kohn, you need to.
