Alfie Kohn is coming on April 25th. Just look at the great header Christina Powers created to herald the news:
In association with Vassar College and Oakwood Friends School
Alfie Kohn will present “The Progressive Schools Our Children Deserve: Helping Students Become Critical Thinkers and Lifelong Learners” on Thursday, April 25 at 7:00 pm at Poughkeepsie Day School’s James Earl Jones Theater.
Our knowledge of how children learn – and how schools can help – has come a long way in the last few decades. And schools must too. Alfie Kohn, described in Time magazine as “perhaps the country’s most outspoken critic of education’s fixation on grades [and] test scores” explores alternatives to conventional practices and explains why progressive education is a realistic alternative. Parents, educators and anyone concerned with the future of our children will not want to miss this!”
