    ALFIE KOHN: The (Progressive) Schools Our Children Deserve.

    This event has passed Get Tickets

    Event description

    Our knowledge of how children learn – and how schools can help β€” has come a long way in the last few decades. Unfortunately, most schools have not: They’re still more about memorising facts and practising isolated skills than understanding ideas from the inside out; they still exclude students from any meaningful decision-making role; and they still rely on grades, tests, homework, lectures, worksheets, competition, punishments, and rewards.Β 

    Alfie Kohn explores the alternatives to each of these conventional practices, explaining why progressive education isn’t just a realistic alternative but one that’s far more likely to help kids become critical thinkers and lifelong learners.

    About Alfie Kohn:

    Alfie writes and speaks widely on human behaviour, education, and parenting. The author of fourteen books and hundreds of articles, he lectures at education conferences and universities as well as to parent groups and corporations. Kohn’s criticisms of competition and rewards have been widely discussed and debated, and he has been described inΒ TimeΒ magazine as β€œperhaps the country’s most outspoken critic of education’s fixation on grades [and] test scores.”
