Long But Interesting



An interesting take on our failed education system by Sir Ken Robinson, animated by Canada's Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufacture and Commerce. Thanks to Dr.John Tierney for the heads up.

It always seems to me that in the UK as soon as an education system seems to be working well they feel the need to change it all.

Thanks for reminding me about this speech. I saw the original RSA address a couple of years ago, and have some notes on it somewhere, but of course it had slipped out of view. The animation is brilliant and the visual aspect makes more of what he says available, somehow.

Yes, it's interesting. I don't agree with all of it. And there isn't much in the way of concrete suggestions for the future. Just criticism. But the graphics are great!
