The Role of Policy in Education

"I do feel strongly and passionately that education is the most important gift that we can give to people. That every individual can be transformed with the right educational opportunity."
"The real role of policy, I believe, is to create a climate in which innovation is possible and self-determination encouraged. Because however committed politicians may be, at whatever level they operate, to school improvement, they are not going to be doing it. That's the work of principals and of teachers and of parents and of students in the system".
Sir Ken Robinson challenges the way we're educating our children. He champions a radical rethink of our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence.
