Why Students Lose When "Tougher Standards" Win: A Conversation with Alfie Kohn.
O'Neil, John; Tell, Carol
Educational Leadership, v57 n1 p18-22 Sep 1999
Kohn believes the "tougher standards" movement is incompatible with personalized learning, excellence, and marginalized kids' interests. Horizontal standards that shift how teaching and learning happen in classrooms are terrific, but vertical standards using traditional pedagogy are macho and mindless. Kids need freedom to design their own learning experiences. (MLH)
