One of our school parents, who is herself an educator, and a member of our School Governance Committee, sent me the link to this animating video. Everyone who has a child at school, everyone who has an interest in education, should read it. You may or may not agree with everything Sir Ken Robinson says (I would take issue with him on several points), the fact is he is one of the most respected voices in education around the world, and his aim is to challenge our prejudices and pre-conceptions - which he does brilliantly. And whether or not you agree, just watching the animation will amaze you.
