A longish film of Sir Ken Robinson. I guess most of you know Sir Ken and where he stands, personally I think he is spot on. Please watch the whole thing, if not then just 2 minutes near the end – just skip forward to 35 minutes 10 seconds in.
He mentions a language teacher who explains that “Some aspects of French are just boring” ..
it makes me think ….
Another bit I like is at 37 Minutes when he talks about ….”If we just standardise everything it’ll hum along nicely” the problem is that schools have humans in them and they are all non standard so sometimes it’ll work and sometimes it won’t.
