My Latest Talk: Beyond Standardized Schools

I was honored to speak to the parents, educators and activists who attended the Community Voices for Public Education (CVPE) event in November.  I don't always use slides in my talks but I really like these images, some from our own projects with kids at Rice as well as some that inspire or motivate me.  After so many years of writing about how standardization has harmed our schools and compromised our children's opportunities to learn, I wanted to share with this audience examples of culturally rich, academically engaging learning.
