The following two items get me thinking:
Law to increase activity eliminates recess at some schools
Not News: Our kids are fat. News: New law increases amount of physical education to 150 minutes per week in elementary schools. [source]
The first item sends chills through my back. If school systems are managed like those described in the first article, the children will grow only into non-thinking ... slave.
The second item gives me hope and inspiration. A good analysis of current education system.
Please implement the ideas given by Ken Robinson!
