Education: Front Seat vs Back Seat - A Paradigm Change Needed

Can we change this?  Please?

Sir Ken Robinson talks about the desperate need for a paradigm shift in our educational system. Please watch this powerful video:

Sir Ken Robinson compares schools to "factories". It is time for a change in education and not one that is mandated by testing and uniformity. A paradigm change is needed. My hope is that it happens soon. We owe that to our students, to our communities, and to ourselves as educators. 

For additional reading from my personal experiences with our educational system, check out these two blog posts from 2014:
- "Divergent Thinking"  
- "Language Learning is not Linear; neither is riding a unicycle".
