Sir Ken likes to to discuss school systems and the way the current paradigms are broken. Similar to a previous post that had his lecture on creativity in the school system, Sir Ken discusses why our current systems are not functioning the way they need to. I was watching a report the other day that shows the US at sub 28th internationally in Education with South Korea rising to to number one in education growth. One of the problems is that education has been politically charged. We have a system born out of the 19th Century and hasn't been modernized since. There's been attempts, don't get me wrong, but from a political platform and thus failed. Pure quantification of education is not feasible. We've had a paradigm shift in technology in the past 50 years that we have never seen in our history as far as pure increase goes. This led to a social shift especially within our children. Yet we keep an outdated model and try to hammer these kids into a peg that doesn't fit them. We educate the capacity out of children until they are institutionally educated. And speaking of institutional, this is one of the source problems that stalls out education. Once we can over come political and consumer institution mentality, I believe we can successfully restructure the education system to where it needs to go.
I really enjoyed how they animated this concept. I hope you enjoy :)
