Reviving the culture of learning

Ken Robinson's new book, Creative Schools: The Grassroots Revolution That's Transforming Education, comes out next week.  Sir Ken likens education to organic farming where health, fairness, care and ecology can promote natural growth.  He says that organic farming is based on getting the soil right - so the plant will be healthy.  Schools have been pushed to raise test scores through standardized testing based on international competition, which has eroded the culture of learning. His book is about how the culture of learning can be revived and revigorated in schools.  Thanks to Bob Greenberg and his Brainwaves series for this video.
