Changing the way we grade students could trigger a wave of innovation

Schools are places where learning happens, but how much of what students learn there matters?

The insane problem of US standardized testing

When it comes to elements of the US education system that simply don't work, there is one controversial topic that educators always come back to: standardized testing.For Rosalind Wiseman, best-selling author and founder of Cultures of Dignity, using standardized tests as the ultimate barometer of a student's worth (and of the quality of education provided by an institution), and perpetuating that system for profit, is not only problematic and inaccurate, it is "criminal" and "irresponsible."The...

Why are sitcom dads still so inept?

From Homer Simpson to Phil Dunphy, sitcom dads have long been known for being bumbling and inept. But it wasn't always this way. Back in the 1950s and 1960s, sitcom dads tended to be serious, calm and wise, if a bit detached. In a shift that media scholars have documented, only in later decades did fathers start to become foolish and incompetent. And yet the real-world roles and expectations of fathers have changed in recent years. Today's dads are putting more time into caring for their childre...
