Sir Ken Robinson
I find Sir Ken Robinson one of the most inspiring educationalists. He says that reforming education is not good enough and that what we need is a revolution to transform it into something else. As with many of the systems in our society it is loosely based around the needs of someone living in the 19th Century. Our needs, capacities and values have changed but our education system lags. I can't do this talk justice with a summary so do watch this enlightening and enthralling Ted Talk.
Let me know what you think! :)
