“One of the deep problems in education, which should concern you as a parent, is the limited idea of intelligence that permeates school culture.” - Sir Ken Robinson
Always witty and super down to earth, Sir Ken Robinson discusses on Atomic Moms: how parents can help their children find the best school for them to thrive, the billion dollar testing industry, ADHD, how our current education system can be compared to industrialized farming, who is actually at fault in the school dropout crisis, and why dance is as important as mathematics in school! xo Ellie
