Abstract: Alfie Kohn (http://www.alfiekohn.org) writes and speaks widely on human behavior, education, and parenting. Time described him as “perhaps the country's most outspoken critic of education's fixation on grades [and] test scores.” He is the author of 12 books, including The Schools Our Children Deserve, The Case Against Standardized Testing, and, most recently, Feel-Bad Education. He spoke with Educational Horizons about innovation in education.
