Sir Ken Robinson on Education’s Death Valley

If you’ve never watched a talk by Sir Ken Robinson, it’s a treat. He’s quite funny and raises some great points. I’ve had a couple people recommend watching this video recently, and I finally did and its fantastic. Ken points out the problems of No Child Left Behind, and without mentioning it, slams Common Core which suffers from an even greater standardization of children. He brings out the importance of individualizing education for children, or what I term an agency-based education approach.
This is a TED talk and lasts about 20 minutes.
