Has Public Education Been Left Behind?

Sir Ken Robinson discusses how it is our educational paradigm itself that has been left behind, taking our children and our future with it.  More of the same will only create more of the same–rising ADHD and dropout rates, and children who are woefully unprepared for the future.  He champions a radical rethink of our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence.  These are the things the Waldorf school does so well.

Watch Sir Ken here.

    This is short but very thought-provoking. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome. We are doing even more of the same thing,over and over, in public education and expecting an improvement.
