With a kid in the second grade, I am constantly thinking about our country's current education system: Is it working for my daughter? My family? My community as a whole?
The documentary Waiting For Superman has a lot of folks talking about education and the fact that our entire education system might be failing today's generation of kids.
With that in mind, take a look at this animated adaptation of a talk given at the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) by Sir Ken Robinson, world-renowned education and creativity expert and recipient of the RSA's Benjamin Franklin award. It will certainly get you thinking about the model of education that we use today.
