My adviser has a great quote that he seems to throw at me quite often... "Don't let class interfere with your education." Seemed to fit with some of the articles that you link to. Now, I must run off to class.

Alfie Kohn, Deborah Meier, James Loewen (author of Lies My Teacher Taught Me...) and other fabulous educators are on the faculty for my summer institute, Constructing Modern Knowledge, this July 12-15th - http://constructingmodernknowledge.com

By the way, this requires a larger discussion, but I believe that "Understanding by Design," is inconsistent with the ideas you find so powerful in Mr. Kohn's work.
