The Eyeopener Report - The Answer to Common Core: Alternative Models of Education

As James Corbett says: "For those who are opposed to a conception of schooling centered on rote memorization and endless standardized testing, the introduction of biosensors and other devices into the classroom to monitor students' behaviour, the prolongation of childhood and arbitrary grouping of individuals by age, the unquestioning obedience to authority that is inherent in the classroom dynamic, the training for the workforce implicit in the segregation of tasks into arbitrary work periods, the Pavlovian conditioning of the bell, what is the alternative? What can be positively proposed as a counterbalance to this palpably destructive form of modern day schooling? Find out the alternative education models that are being implemented in classrooms around the world in this week's edition of The Eyeopener."
