Ken Robinson talks about ways to adapt modern education to move from an industrial, “one size fits all” education that forces conformity and convention to an “organic” system that creates an environment for the student to flourish and grow in their own way – like a farmer creates the conditions for crops to grow but doesn’t force them all to be the same size or weight.
I’m a passionate believer in decentralised education having experienced far too much socialist nonsense in previous jobs- “no child left behind” and “all students are equal” is complete bunk. Even in teams of IT people, it takes as many low skilled, low motivation individuals to do some work, while the motivated and learned people work in other areas.
Inspirational Sunday viewing – humour, warmth and genuine insight. A must watch.
