Educating the Public on Public Education
Nationally known education researcher Rick Stiggins
Join us for a 1-hour conversation with Rick about his latest book Give Our Students the Gift of Confidence which describes how our schools can foster student self-confidence, self-awareness of own progress, and optimism for their future. The role of assessment in this is clear: the over-use of commercially bought standardized testing often numbs students with failure. Other assessments can do the opposite. Parents and teachers must talk back to the current system and stop the harm to kids.
