Web-only Extra: Alfie Kohn on the Common Core

Alfie_Kohn11WV interviewed Alfie Kohn about his book, The Myth Of The Spoiled Child (Da Capo Lifelong Books, March 2014.) 

We also asked Kohn about his views on the Common Core and alternative education, but weren’t able to include it in the show. Here’s that segment.

Alfie Kohn is a frequent lecturer on the topics of education and parenting, and the author of twelve previous books, including The Homework Myth, Punished by Rewards, and Unconditional Parenting. His work has been covered by the New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, and USA Today, and he has appeared on CNN, BBC, and numerous NPR shows. His website is at alfiekohn.org.
