Perspectives on Education by Sir Ken Robinson

Sir Ken Robinson says educating kids is "not like making motorcars." At TED, he spoke about how to improve the system. Here is speak about an "organic" system which I might argue is a post modern perspective on education and curriculum. Take a look at this video-- it runs about 2 minutes and is bound to make you think about people who make calls for "test preparation" and "teaching to the test." I think Sir Robinson gets it-- but having the true leadership to enact such policies is often beyond the conceptual reach of most old school educators and ill informed Boards of Education. -Dr. Petroisno
