Education: How Can we Move Forward?

Take a look at this thought provoking talk by educationalist Sir Ken Robinson for the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA).

He suggests that our education system is based upon the factory production line from the industrial revolution. He argues that this is outdated for the modern child and does not necessarily prepare them for the ever-changing economic climate. Robinson puts forward the idea of waking kids up in the classroom!

We would love to hear comments from parents! Are you concerned about the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach for your child’s education? What are your thoughts on Robinson’s talk? Add your comments below.
