In the video below - Seth Godin discusses our educational system and reminds us that we cannot test our way out of our current state.
A line that strikes a chord with me from the clip - "It would not take too many passionate parents to push our schools down the right path."
I think the point is similar to the one made by Will Richardson in his blog post that I highlighted yesterday "What's Up With Parents?"
Godin sums up the point in the final line of a blog post he wrote today, titled Two Types Of Schooling, by asking the following question:
"Is there anything more important to you and your organization (or your kids or your town) than figuring out how to obtain and share the wisdom that real teaching can deliver?"
I encourage you to watch the clip and leave your thoughts or questions.
In this second video Godin talks about how schools teach students how to make safe choices and push for smaller assignments.
