My man runs a primary school and believes passionately about children and their futures.. he is a bit of a radical when it comes to his feelings about the way we currently teach children in our education system and believes in emotional intelligence..
I am not going to pretend that I know much about the subject ... but I DO know that children are sacred and should be nurtured in all capacities...the right education is the foundation to their happiness and success in life whichever path they choose.
Two days ago.. I was shown a video of Sir Ken Robinson.. an educational guru ... this 20 minute video will change the way you think about your child's education... it is profound and thought provoking in many ways...
As I have still completely failed to link properly yet... I have managed somehow to link to the video clip by clicking on the title of my post.. For your children's sake.. this will lead you to Sir Ken Robinson's inspirational talk...
I found it most interesting and very moving .. this man is a visionary... PLEASE watch..!
Even if you think this is not relevant to you or your children .. it will resonate .. with you in some way.. I promise!
I would love to hear your thoughts about Sir Ken Robinson's philosophy..
