Christopher Tienken on the School Reform Landscape

I got several emails about this excellent video yesterday. Christopher Tienken is a professor at Seton Hall University and was an early voice against Common Core. This short video he has made makes some excellent points, though I disagree with one of his points at the beginning that there isn’t a problem in education. We see very clearly that university schools of education are steeped in bad educational philosophies like constructivism, which is one of the more destructive methods of teaching when used to extremes as it is in our schools in Utah. Still, don’t let that stop you from enjoying this excellent video.

    I can’t stop standing and applauding! This just may be the very best short video I’ve ever seen about so-called “Education Reform”—both in its technical and professional artistry AND its brilliant content—delivered with confidence and clarity from an absolutely superb speaker.

“Whatever an education is, it should make you a unique individual, not a conformist; it should furnish you with an original spirit with which to tackle the big challenges; it should allow you to find values which will be your roadmap through life; it should make you spiritually rich, a person who loves whatever you are doing, wherever you are, whomever you are with; it should teach you what is important, how to live and how to die.” — John Taylor Gatto, Dumbing us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling
