Alternative education practices need to become mainstream

I love what Sir Ken Robinson says here in this recent TEDx talk from London.

He talks about some of the principals of good education (personalized curriculum, intensive relationship between students and teachers, group activities, indentifying the individual talents of each student), and wonders why many of these qualities are now most often ”confined to the alternative to mainstream education.”

In this age of rapid change and technological development, “alternative education” should be mainstream.
