Talk Out of School

Why the US needs Finnish Schools and Chinese Kindergartens

Episode Summary

Carol Burris talks with Dr. Michael Hynes and William Doyle about a learning experience that differs from the one we see in schools now, including a model that promotes joy and rich learning experiences rather than focusing on testing. A way to do this is to incorporate play back into school, much like the current system in Finland. Carol and Michael also discuss the current situation in Long Island regarding coronavirus and what education might look like if schools are to shut down.
