152: Behaviorism In Disguise – Outcome-Based Education

Co-Hosts: Alyson, Cory, Mandrik Topics: A seemingly comical entry-point into dark territory: Texas GOP Declares: "No More Teaching of 'Critical Thinking Skills' in Texas Public Schools" which quotes the party platform: "We oppose the teaching of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) (values clarification), critical thinking skills and similar programs that are simply a relabeling of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) (mastery learning) which focus on behavior modification and have the purpose of challenging the student's fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority."
