Valuing Students and Children – Podcast Episode 84 | Classnotes Podcast 84
Classnotes Podcast (February 25, 2011) Familiar questions have been buzzing around the latest release of PISA test results showing low rankings among U.S. students compared to those in other countries, along with the controversy surrounding Amy Chua’s book, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother. Some are asking if we should be more stringent with our children both at home and at school. Linda Cantu, Ph.D., an IDRA senior education associate, presents an alternative approach based on the experience of the Coca-Cola Valued Youth Program that has turned conventional thinking on its head. She describes how the valuing philosophy of the program works as well as how it has influenced her as a mother and classroom teacher. Linda is interviewed by Aurelio Montemayor , M.Ed., director of the IDRA Texas Parent Information and Resource Center.
