In early June of this year, I had the pleasure of filming bestselling education writer and educator Herbert (Herb) Kohl at his home in Point Arena, CA where he addressed the 7th annual AERO conference. Kohl delivered a riveting keynote challenging alternative and democratic educators, while presenting a stirring call to fight for public education as a foundational element of democracy. I found his talk thoroughly engaging, blending humor, wonderful anecdotes, while presenting tough and important questions for those involved in education--specifically, democratic and private learning alternatives. I invite you to watch his talk and join me in a meaningful discussion around so many of the issues presented and addressed in his talk. The twelve questions asked of Kohl in his talk during the Q&A portion, can be read at http://aeroeducation.org/2010/10/04/herbert-kohl-2010-aero-conference-keynote-video/. If you need a little prodding to get the discussion going, I have two questions for you: "What part of the talk resonated with you the most?" and "What did you feel most challenged by in the talk?"
