Too often standards and curriculum dictate what students should learn in the classroom without allowing time (or opportunities) for them to pursue their academic interests. Add the pressure on students to attend college at all costs (literally and figuratively), and we find that learning remains dominated by the choices and decisions that adults make.

How do we find a happy medium where we maximize student learning and development with the kind of learning that educators know matters? Among the guests joining Peter DeWitt will be John Hattie, an award-winning education researcher and best-selling author with nearly 30 years of experience examining what works best in student learning and achievement.
