Piece on NPR about the book: I don't know: In Praise of Admitting Ignorance (Except When You Shouldn't)
Excerpt from NPR piece:
This year's graduating high school class will be the first generation to have grown up entirely under the No Child Left Behind Act, so this is an entire generation of kids that's been raised in an educational environment where there's a premium on knowing the right answer, being able to fill in the correct oval on a test. I worry that we may not be teaching enough the value of experimentation and failure and risk-taking and the process of inquiry.
