Sir Ken Robinson

My favorite quotes…

“We have sold ourselves into a fast food model of education.  And it’s impoverishing our spirits and our energies as much as fast food is depleting our physical bodies.”

“Like a farmer, all you can do is create the conditions under which they will begin to flourish.”

“{Education} is about customizing to your circumstances and personalizing education to the people you are actually teaching.  Doing that, I think, is the answer to the future.”

  1. “Every day, everywhere, children lay their dreams by our feet, and we should tread softly.”

    What a lovely video, thank you for sharing it.

    How true, 3 year olds are not half six year olds! So many however seem to think so.
