Re-Examining Self-Discipline in Our Learning Systems, Pt. 3

What does it say about our society and its learning systems, poses Kohn, if the idea of self-control is widely applauded even though it may sometimes be inflexible, limiting, and “spoil the experience and savorings of life”?

It’s clear for many educators that any extreme in behavior is generally undesirable in a learning system. Too little self-control is as undesirable as too much. But even though we may tell ourselves this intellectually, in the classroom this may be forgotten as undercontrolled egos run wild.

As Alfie Kohn points out, a reluctance to acknowledge the negative effects of both extremes is prevalent in our learning systems.
