This short video was created based off a speech given at the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts) by Ken Robinson, world-renown education expert and recipient of the RSA Benjamin Franklin Award. It gives a good overview of our current education system and why it functions as it does. It argues that the system in place now is privileged to individuals with certain skills, and does not cater to individuals with creative minds. The speaker talks about industrialization and how it has shaped the education system today and also addresses the rise of ADHD medication and how it is affecting youth.
