The big issue
Is the way we educate our children fit for purpose in the modern world, or is it simply a hangover of 19th century industrialisation? In this seismic talk, Sir Ken Robinson argues that it is the case that our education systems are consistently failing our children and that we need a radical rethink to overhaul them. No punch is pulled as he asks how do we make change happen in education and how do we make it last?
