John Loeffler: December 23, 2019

Merry Christmas everyone!  We have a unique show for you this week.  In the boralogue, John sets the table for the rest of the program, giving an overview as to how we got to where we are with education.  In 1989, Dr. Shirley McCune signaled a sea change for totally transforming education.  Today we are seeing the results of that change.

 

In 1994, John produced a program on KWGN in Denver that featured a round table of guests discussing the truth about outcome-based education.  What was said then, we are seeing today, so we will play a lot from that program on this week's show.  John moderated and the featured guests were Charlotte Iserbyt, Dwight Williams, Berit Kjos, and Gen Yvette Sutton.

 

Topics discussed include the processes put into place allowing outcome-based education to begin, the work of change agents to convince the public that this radical transformation was a good idea, and getting children to transition from logical reasoning to emotional reasoning.

 

The guests go on to examine how teachers and administrators changed the way students thought and how they approached problem-solving, and how standardized tests have changed over the years to reflect this radical transformation of America's education system.

 

John’s quote of the week:

"If you took standardized testing from 1960 and asked a student today to pass that test, they wouldn't be able to do it.  And the student from 1960 couldn't pass today's test because they couldn't think in politically correct terms. It's difficult to compare apples to oranges to see how far we have fallen."
