If you went to a “normal” school, chances are you’ll answer yes without hesitation. I know that I would. In this 20 minute talk, Ken Robinson helps us to understand why this is the case and how tragic it is.
There’s a lot I could say, but it would be much better to let this brilliant video speak for itself. I will say this though: I am strongly attracted to the idea of home schooling or other alternative forms of education. This isn’t because I’m afraid of the big bad secular schools, but rather because our children are getting a crap education there.
