Benjamin Franklin Award-Winner Sir Ken Robinson thinks that students aren’t paying attention in class for reasons other than what public education leaders tell us.
If you’ve ever been diagnosed with ADHD, this video will explain a lot.
Having been both a straight ‘A’ student, and a mediocre student, I can relate to what it said in this video. After a while, i just didn’t see how modern education was helping me- I even took a year off from my University.
What Robinson says about operating at your “optimal level” makes sense. How are students supposed to learn what doesn’t interest them? Why are they being forced to in the first place? Churning out degrees like a factory isn’t contributing to anything.
