Alfie Kohn Leaves No Standardized Test Unscathed

Picture 63.png
Like Clint Eastwood coming into town to clean up all the riff raff, Alfie Kohn is headed this way to put an end to standardized testing.  This will take place on Nov. 18 at

Concordia-Chicago .

Time magazine has called Kohn "perhaps the country's most outspoken critic of education's fixation on grades [and] test scores."

The Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times have profiled him, while his work is discussed and debated by critics, education experts, parents and teachers across the globe.

The presentation begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Chapel of Our Lord at Concordia University Chicago, 7400 Augusta St. in River Forest.

Concordia graduates the state's largest number of public school teachers among private Illinois colleges. More than 3,000 Chicagoland teachers and administrators seeking their graduate education degrees enroll at Concordia each year.
