ABCs of DumbDown: COMMON CORE: The Madness Is in the Method

Another Neoconservative’s Horse’s Mouth Tells it Like it is…

A disturbing interview regarding Heartland Institute’s new book REWARDS:

Professor Herbert Walberg: “Psychologically speaking; I could could even say philosophically speaking, use of rewards is rationality. You want to arrange things so that intelligent or productive behavior is followed by something that is satisfying. If it does, that connection is extremely important in making the learning more permanent in the individual.”
Interviewer: “Let’s turn to Part 1 of the book Rewards which contains four chapters. Today we will discuss Chapter 1, the ‘Psychology of Motivation.'”

Question: What is a reward psychologically speaking? How does it work?

Professor Walberg: “Psychologically speaking; I could could even say philosophically speaking, use of rewards is rationality. You want to arrange things so that intelligent or productive behavior is followed by something that is satisfying. If it does, that connection is extremely important in making the learning more permanent in the individual.”

The above quote is taken from the neoconservative Heartland Institute’s website link to an interview regarding the book Rewards, by Joseph Bast, President of the Heartland Institute, and Herbert Walberg, Professor of Psychology, the Hoover Institute. The School Reform News Podcasts regarding the book Rewards tells us that the book has been written principally to influence legislation. The interview took place on 10/1/14.
