Talk: Schools on Trial

Nikhil Goyal stops by Google NYC to chat about his book: "Schools On Trial: How Freedom and Creativity Can Fix Our Educational Malpractice." A journalist and activist all of twenty years old whom the Washington Post has dubbed a “future education secretary” offers both a scathing indictment of our teach-to-the-test-while-killing-the-spirit educational assembly line and maps out a path for all of our schools to harness children’s natural aptitude for learning by creating an atmosphere conducive to freedom and creativity. He prescribes an inspiring educational future that is thoroughly democratic and experiential, and one that utilizes the entire community as a classroom.
