Alfie Kohn and National Testing

I've just bought this book by Alfie Kohn

I haven't finished it yet but it is giving me a lot to think about in light of the current discussion in NZ about national education standards.

Actually I was prompted to post something here because I read Graham Wegner's blog and his latest comment is about the death of blogging.

Sorry. Back to Alfie Kohn. Wouldn't it be great to get someone like this out to NZ to speak the Minister of Education.

It's the school holidays here in New Zealand so apart from sleeping and catching up on unfinished school work I am managing to also do some reading. Quite fun really when you get the time. :)
