Episode 12: what does student centered even mean? Anything? Sept. 15, 2015

When our top educators start suggesting that children can do their job better than they can, we need to let these people retire.

The three recommended guides and an excellent work by each:

Why Johnny Still Can’t Read by Rudolf Flesch

Crimes of the Educators by Samuel Blumenfeld

War Against Academic Child Abuse by Siegfried Engelmann


I think the real reason the student-centered sophistry was concocted is that adults don't want to say no to children. if you're told that children wouldn't like a certain idea, you think, okay, let's get rid of it. You see how this turns the world upside down.
Reading this article again, I realized that my favorite phrase is "truth centered." In the last few years, I started to think of K-12 as a crime scene and a fraud. Not enough truth, that's the problem.

Recurring themes. Big ideas. Unifying concepts.
