Sir Ken Robinson explains how the education system needs to adapt to current global trends. It was conceived during the Industrial Revolution, during the Enlightenment period, to give all children free, mandatory education. But it focused on “academic” people and “non-academic” people, which judges atypically brilliant people by a nearly impossible standard. It proposes more customized learning and supporting divergent thinking. It uses the example of ADHD medication trends in the united states to explain how children are being anesthetized to their education instead of being stimulated by it. When the educational system focuses on standardized test scores, the arts suffer, which in turns hurts childrens’ ability to innovate and think creatively.
