I am an avid follower of speeches made by Sir Ken Robinson. He is the only person that I have ever heard articulate exactly what is wrong with our education systems in a way that makes complete sense. Having been a victim of the education system myself, I hated and loathed my time at school because I felt that it was largely wasting my time by trying to force me to learn stuff that was somewhat irrelevant and to think differently than the way I wanted to think. Consequently I was of course a “thick fucker” and I was told by the school that the best job I could ever aspire to was a car repairer. Interesting.
Anyway, watch this really cool clip and think about how you would choose to educate your child.
