Check out this informative (but funny!) Ted Talks video. Sir Ken Robinson discusses where we have gone wrong with our education system. America spends more money on education, has smaller class sizes, and has attempted more initiatives than most other countries. However, emphasis has been put on producing good workers, rather than creative thinkers.
Humans are naturally diverse, but we are not cultivating creativity or acknowledging the multiple types of intelligence that our young generations possess. Robinson challenges the way we are educating our children, forcing you to rethink our system where standardized testing has become the dominant culture.
