This is a thought-provoking video. I agree with much of what Ken Robinson says, however, from an economic point of view governments have limited incentives to change or improve the education system. In fact, I would argue that the problems described in this video were readily identifiable over one hundred years ago and as such are not recent discoveries. However, in the case of ADHD, they are clearly getting out of hand. If there is to be a revolution in education it will from parents brave enough to homeschool and from companies like Four Birds Education which have the potential to shame the government into abandoning their stranglehold on education.
