Re: Ken Robinson: Changing Education Paradigms
I fear that many people will see this as an argument in favour of today's increasingly individualist approach to education. Let the children learn what they want, keep them interested in education by allowing them the freedom to choose their curriculum. What many people fail to understand is that, despite being painted in a negative light by Sir Robinson, there frequently is one answer. It is certainly incredibly important for children and teens to learn that there are multitudes of ways to solve many problems, but teaching them this must be done very carefully. The last thing we need is an entire generation unable to discern the difference between concrete fact and whimsical opinion or belief.
