Thank you, Sir Ken Robinson
I first discovered Sir Ken Robinson through his mind-blowing TED talk How Schools Kill Creativity, and I immediately knew I’d found a kindred spirit.
You see, I have rather strong opinions about the education system. I think it’s outdated, irrelevant and almost useless when it comes to teaching real world skills.
It is a dream of mine to one day open my own school with a curriculum built around creative expression, entrepreneurship, and learning how to function in the modern world. Kids would be taught about marketing and money management, they would be encouraged to question everything and develop their skills in those areas in which they excelled. Each child would play an active role in their education rather than being churned through a cookie cutter system.
Ah, one day I’ll make it happen.
In the meantime, feast your brain on this absolute gem from Sir Ken:
Thank you, Sir Ken Robinson, for showing me that my ideas have weight. Thank you for inspiring me to actually map out my ideas of a revolutionised education system on paper. Thank you for making me realise how necessary it is to make changes to the way our children are educated.
