I never get tired of listening to Ken Robinson speaking on education and the importance of encouraging creativity in our children.
In this video, Ken makes the point that the American education system needs to embrace and develop the unique traits of each child instead of teaching and testing to a standard that supposedly ‘leaves no child behind’. He goes on to explain how the ‘command and control’ approach of the Federal and State governments developed to suit the industrial economy never really worked and is clearly the wrong path going forward.
If you have children and you’ve never listened to Ken speak, do yourself a favor and take the time to watch this. You won’t be disappointed.
