Bill Resnick talks to Harry Feder, who taught high school in NYC for 22 years, after leaving a career as a litigator in New York City. He’s now retired from teaching but working as hard as ever as Executive Director of the organization Fair Test, that works “to end the misuses and flaws of standardized testing students and to ensure that evaluation of students, teachers and schools is fair, open, valid and educationally beneficial.” Feder offers a radical critique of high stakes testing. He also discusses alternative forms of evaluation that dispose students to values and democratic life choices, thereby demonstrating how children’s education could be a building block of that necessary possible democratic and sustainable world.
