Do we need to reform our education system?

Make PD your own - Professional Development Sunday at Raki's Rad Resources

Recently, I posted about how my school is using Facebook and Pinterest as part of our professional development.  (See the whole post HERE.) I’ve decided to pass on some of the best videos and articles I come across to you each Sunday evening.  Here is this week’s professional development post:

Is our system of education outdated?

The format of this video is amazing!  It has a growing, changing drawing that matches the speech going on.  However, the topic is even more amazing.  It discusses educational reform and the importance of of creativity in actual knowledge.  The speaker, Sir Ken Robinson, presents the argument that our schools are taking the creativity of out of our children by standardized testing and our general system of education.  What do you think?
