Yong Zhao’s Must-Watch Lecture on “Side Effects in Education”

This is a video of Yong Zhao’s brilliant lecture on education reform at Wellesley College on November 1.

He called it “What Works May Hurt. Side Effects in Education.” He recently published a book explains this paradox. I strongly recommend this book and every other book Zhao has written. He is a truly fresh thinker.

Here is an example. Suppose you discovered a method of teaching reading that is certain to raise test scores but equally certain to make students hate reading. Would you go with this approach?

His lecture is informed, witty, and entertaining.

I hope you will make time to watch this wonderful scholar at his best.

I endowed this lecture series a few years back. All the talks are archived here.
