    Atria Books 2006; US$ 15.99

    Most parenting guides begin with the question "How can we get kids to do what they're told?"--and then proceed to offer various techniques for controlling them.

What follows from that question are... more...

  • What Does It Mean to Be Well Educated?by Alfie Kohn

    Beacon Press 2004; US$ 16.00

    Few writers ask us to question our fundamental assumptions about education as provocatively as Alfie Kohn. Time magazine has called him'perhaps the country's most outspoken critic of education's fixation on grades [and] test scores.' And the Washington Post says he is 'the most energetic and charismatic figure standing in the way of a major federal... more...

    Mind-opening writing on what kids need from school, from one of education’s most outspoken voices   Almost no writer on schools asks us to question our fundamental assumptions about education and motivation as boldly as Alfie Kohn.

  • Punished by Rewardsby Alfie Kohn

    Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 1999; US$ 15.17

    The basic strategy we use for raising children, teaching students, and managing workers can be summarized in six words: do this and you'll get that. We dangle goodies (from candy bars to sales commissions) in front of people in much the same way that we train a family pet. The quick fix of rewards may seem to be effective, but manipulating people... more...

  • The Schools Our Children Deserveby Alfie Kohn

    Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2000; US$ 14.58

    In this “lively, provocative and well-researched book” (Theodore Sizer), AlTe Kohn builds a powerful argument against the “back to basics” philosophy of teaching and simplistic demands to “raise the bar.” Drawing on stories from real classrooms and extensive research, Kohn shows parents, educators, and others interested in the debate how schools can... more...

  • No Contestby Alfie Kohn

    Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2013; US$ 14.58

  • The Myth of the Spoiled Childby Alfie Kohn

    Da Capo Press 2014; US$ 30.00

    Somehow, a set of deeply conservative assumptions about children--what they're like and how they should be raised--have congealed into the conventional wisdom in our society. Parents are accused of being both permissive and overprotective, unwilling to set limits and afraid to let their kids fail. Young people, meanwhile, are routinely described as... more...

  • The Homework Mythby Alfie Kohn

    Da Capo Press 2007; US$ 20.00

    So why do we continue to administer this modern cod liver oil-or even demand a larger dose? Kohn's incisive analysis reveals how a set of misconceptions about learning and a misguided focus on competitiveness has left our kids with less free time, and our families with more conflict. Pointing to stories of parents who have fought back-and schools... more...
