Ken Robinson, an international leader in education, compares the education system in the United States to Death Valley. In his comparison, he points out three principles in which human life flourishes: humans are different, humans are curious, and humans are creative. As he points out the flaws of our education system, he also offers solutions and gives examples of how to make it better.

  1. I appreciate the fact that not only does Ken Robinson point out flaws in the education system, he also proposes solutions. Too often people complain about issues but offer no help is solving the problem. Great video!

  2. I discovered Sir Ken last year. I really enjoy his perspective. What I like most is that he doesn’t just attack a system, he offers recommendations and possible solutions as well.
