Alfie Kohn in Chicago twice in April

One of the original leaders of the national resistance to high stakes testing will be in Chicago twice in April. Here is what we recently received from Alfie Kohn.

…just a quick note to let you know that I’m going to be speaking at two different events in Chicago during the month of April.

On the 14th, I’ll be giving a lunchtime keynote address at a conference on progressive education being held at The Children’s School in Berwyn. The host is encouraging people to attend the full-day event but may be open to having some folks attend just my talk, space permitting. For more information, write to pdmm@ or call (708) 207-5656.

Then, on the 29th, I’ll be back to speak about Unconditional Parenting at a dinnertime fundraiser for the Chicago Children’s Museum at Navy Pier. For more information, call (312) 464-7702.
