Changing Education Paradigms
You might appreciate this extremely clever video. I know that our local Catholic Montessorians enjoyed it very much. RSA Animate adapted it from a talk given by Sir Ken Robinson. I'm not familiar with the further work of either entity, but I very much appreciated this particular piece...and hope you enjoy it as well.
An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

I enjoyed it very much. In Arkansas (where you can hardly think straight), the linkage of education and economics is explicit in the State constitution. Protestant culture at its finest.

I think, therefore, I homeschool.

For what it's worth, I read a book, "Designed to Fail", a few years ago that said essentially the same thing. Technically, it referred to Catholic schools in particular, but the points have great meaning for education in general. As I discerned these ideas over my teens and early 20's, I regret that I developed a VERY skeptical view of education! Curious: Did he propose any politically viable solutions?

Unfortunately, the audio dies about 11 minutes in, so we miss the final words. I have tried it on two computers.
