Sir Ken Robinson Speaks on Education

“The figures in the US are very worrying.  It has one of the highest nongraduation rates in the developed world despite spending more money on education than many. 

ImageSo, how do we fix that? We individualize it.  Education is being driven more and more by testing.  We pay a high price for this in terms of kids’ interests.  I can’t imagine that there’s a student in America who gets up in the morning hoping he can improve the state’s test scores.

–Ken Robinson, educator and author in 10 Questions interview in Time Magazine, June 10, 2013
