Sir Ken Robinson talks about what is wrong with the education system – namely us. We push children down the cookie cutter assembly line of education and expect them all to come out the same at the end. This doesn’t account for passion or individuality.
And we have sold ourselves into a fast food model of education. And it’s impoverishing our spirit and our energies as much as fast food is depleting our physical bodies.
He offers the suggestion of moving to system that feeds their passion, encourages growth and development.
We have to move to a model that is based more on principles of agriculture. We have to recognize that human flourishing is not a mechanical process, it’s an organic process. And you cannot predict the outcome of human development; all you can do, like a farmer, is create the conditions under which they will begin to flourish.
