This is a mind-reeling video by Sir Ken Robinson, a Brit, who speaks about the failures of our current public education system and how we can change our approach from the factory-based methodology of the past to a more collaborative approach of the future.
I watched it and asked myself these questions as I applied it to our current models of Christian education:
- Is our Christian education paradigm about production and conforming?
- Do we encourage divergent thinking or do we push people towards a particular answer?
- How might the Church better embrace the arts as they are the casualties of this current problem?
