The day is in its home stretch: tonight’s keynote is from Alfie Kohn. Here’s his bio from his website:
Alfie Kohn writes and speaks widely on human behavior, education, and parenting. The author of twelve books and scores 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 inTime magazine as “perhaps the country’s most outspoken critic of education’s fixation on grades [and] test scores.”
Needless to say, I’m intrigued. One more session, then home for sleep!
