"In this poignant, funny follow-up to his fabled 2006 talk, Sir Ken Robinson makes the case for a radical shift from standardized schools to personalized learning -- creating conditions where kids' natural talents can flourish."
As a home-educator, Sir Ken Robinson's words resonate with me deeply. "It's about creating a movement in education in which people develop their own solutions but with external support based on a personalized curriculum." I couldn't agree more and I'm grateful for the resources available today such as Oak Meadow and Mindfulness Together.
Factory-model education overlooks the importance of nurturing a child's talents. I believe it's up to the parents to become engaged in their child's education and demand more from their schools. What's more, when we learn to honor education as a process and not a means to an end, we give our children the gift of living in the present moment. It is only here, in this moment, that our lives really take place.
