  25. 25. Feel-Bad EducationThe Cult of Rigor and the Loss of Joyby: Alfie Kohnhttp://www.alfiekohn.org/teaching/edweek/feelbad.htm I’m appearing to accept an odious premise—namely, that joy must be justified as a means to the end of better academic performance.

  35. 35. “...the pattern has been that as children grow up andbecome more proficient at making sense of theenvironment in which they live, their world seems tobecome more stable. Thus, as a child grows andbecomes accustomed to the world, the perceived needfor play.”

Thus, as a child grows andbecomes accustomed to the world, the perceived needfor play.”“As we watch the world move to a state of near-constantchange and flux, we believe that connecting playand imagination may be the single most importantstep in unleashing the new culture of learning.”
