Quotes: Ken Robinson 3

23 Mar

“Educating more people and to a much higher standard is vital. But we also have to educate them differently.”

“Ignoring the human factor is at the root of many of the problems that industrial systems of education have created.”

“Young people who stay at school now find themselves under much more pressure from testing than my generation was. They work harder to get into college than we did; they work harder when they are there if they want a good result and, when they leave, their qualifications are worth less.”

“We don’t teach people how to deal with failure and this is a fundamental oversight.”

– Ken Robinson: Out of our Minds, chapter 3
