On this episode I talk to Stanislaw Pstrokonski, the host of the wonderful podcast Education Bookcast. The podcast has been running since 2016, and on it Staś has been covering education books and research in more detail that what is commonly done in the education podcast world. We talk about what he has learned from doing the podcast, some of his favorite episodes and topics, how he has changed his mind and what prompted these changes, and what a good conversation about the school of the future should look like. 

We discuss the different basic outlooks of people in discussing education and education reform, how willingly we believe certain arguments and are disinclined to listen to other arguments, Thomas Sowell's book A Conflict of Visions, discussions about math education, problem solving and cognitive load, issues with progressive pedagogy, critical thinking, cultural expectations about learning and schooling, Direct Instruction, Montessori education, how school wastes kids’ time and how much we should teach every day, aftercare, physical activity and play, misbehavior and discipline, Peter Gray’s criticisms of schooling, anthropology and learning in traditional societies, learning math at Sudbury Valley school, idealizing apprenticeships, what children spend time on outside of school, the US car culture, fear of abductions and other irrational fears, and much more. 

Books mentioned: 

Thomas Sowell, A Conflict of Visions

Paul Lockhart, A Mathematician’s Lament

David Epstein, Range

Siegfried Engelmann og Douglas Carnine, Theory of Instruction: Principles and Applications

Daniel Willingham,  Why Don’t Students Like School?, The Reading Mind
