Student Voices - Nikhil Goyal on "One Size Does Not Fit All" + Panel Discussion

Join me Monday, September 24th, for a one-hour live and interactive FutureofEducation.com webinar with returning guest Nikhil Goydal about his book, One Size Does Not Fit All: A Student’s Assessment of School. "17-year-old Nikhil Goyal offers a ground-breaking prescription for transforming American schools. Drawing from hundreds of interviews with renowned thinkers like Howard Gardner, Seth Godin, Dan Pink, Noam Chomsky, Diane Ravitch, and Frank Bruni, Goyal calls to radically redefine the way the country does schooling. From implementing an anti-disciplinary curriculum to reinventing the teaching profession, his propositions are timely and provocative. Goyal walks us through the tenets of the system, shattering claims dispersed in the education conversation" (from the publishers website). Nikhil's biography is below.

Immediately following the interview (but in a different Blackboard Collaborate room), Zak Malamed will lead a Student Voice panel discussion for students, parents, teachers and others to reflect upon and discuss what happened during yesterday's NBC’s Education Nation Student Town Hall. The discussion will give participants the opportunity to reflect on the Town Hall and discuss what can be done to enhance and empower the student voice nationwide. Student Voice is a grassroots organization that works to unite and elevate the student voice. This support network serves to aid and empower students in their efforts to be heard and earn their rightful seat at the table.
