Education needs to feed your spirit & passion

In this Ted talk Sir Ken Robinson claims that “education dislocates people from their natural talents” and that “we have to change our model of what education is. We have to go from an industrial model, a manufacturing model, which is based on linearity and conformity to a model based more on principles of agriculture. We must recognize that human flourishing is not a mechanical process, it’s an organic process and you can’t predict the outcome of human development. All you can do is like a farmer create the conditions under which it will begin to flourish.”

He says that education needs to be customized to the people you’re actually teaching!
