Progressive Education with Alfie Kohn
In this episode, best-selling author Alfie Kohn shares his research on education, human behavior and parenting and why we must challenge "traditionalism" with a more "progressive" model of education that eliminates letter grades, home work, standardized testing and an unhealthy focus on competition between students. Instead, Kohn advocates for a more "student-centered" approach in which cooperative learning allows schools to move away from data-driven instructional methods to a more authentic assessment of student learning.
