Changing Education Paradigms

This video by RSA focuses on the renowned presentation given by Sir Ken robinson on creativity. A key argument is his belief that schools educate creativity out of their students. If your living in the UK, we think this will resonate well with those who are being subjugated to the Government’s education secretary – Michael Gove.
Well Mr Gove – we hope you have seen this, but we doubt it. Your emphasis on grades, grades, grades and obsession with the ridiculous PISA league tables good have dire consequences for the future economy. Britain’s main export is its people – with creativity being at the heart of this. He’d do well to invite Sir Ken into the education secretary’s offices and discuss the real purpose of education!
Rant over. Enjoy the video.
