Substandard gold standards? Douglas Willms, International Academy of Education president

There are few things in education more polarizing than standardized testing. It has long divided teachers into those who believe it does more harm than good, and those who say it ensures not only the quality, but also equality, of education.

To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Douglas Willms, a Canadian educator and president of the International Academy of Education.
