Ep23 – Beyond Discipline: From Compliance to Community: Featuring Alfie Kohn

Episode Highlights

Every once in a while, it takes a radical approach to take down the most misguided educational traditions that we face in our work.

Topics include: 
  • The failure myth 
  •  Analyzing task vs behavior 
  • Rethinking our goals in education and fighting the status quo
  • Using community of the whole to improve the individual
