This hour, as part of KERA’ American Graduate initiative, we’ll talk about the flaws in that thinking – and about how we can preserve diverse ways of learning – with NPR digital education reporter Anya Kamenetz. Her new book is The Test: Why Our Schools Are Obsessed With Standardized Testing – But You Don’t Have to Be (PublicAffairs).
