Is our education system failing the majority?

I would recommend that everyone at least watches the shorted animated version.

 

Haven't got time to comment this second, but I will find time later or over the weekend, suffice to say that I both understand and accept Sir Ken's perspective on our failing education system. Yet, I have absolutely no idea where to begin in order to entirely cure it.

 

Change isn't as simple as transplanting one of the successful Scandinavian systems before anyone suggests that.

I know!  I've shared the same beliefs ever since I started in the profession, but like you have never seen it explained in such an intelligent accessible way :)

Too many poor people in education these days, re-open the mines and get them sent to work the lazy kernts.

 

Bit extreme from you, must be something you picked up from travelling in SA

in reply to the OP, YES massivly. it's not set up to educate but to produce factory fodder and has been for years.

 

Pretty much this. Results are the be-all and end-all for schools now.

 

Said this before but kids are taught how to pass exams not be able to use their skills to work things out themselves.

It is aye,  but culturally edcuation isn't as important as it used to be or should be among todays kids, and that in itself is as big an issue.

As Sir Ken pointed out, it's because people don't buy into the myth of education anymore.
