Why need a revolution in school?
Book Review: Ken Robinson. School of future. A revolution that will permanently change education
Keywords:education, standardization, revolution, organic education, school
The article presents a review of Ken Robinson’s book “School of the Future”. In this book, the author states that governments of modern states make a mistake. They orient on standardization, competition, and corporatization in education. We live in the dynamic, changing world which does not have a linear organization. To answer the challenges of the modern world, we need to re-think of the principles of learning. Ken Robinson insists that in order to understand how education should look like, we need to appeal to first principles. Instead of a standardized education Ken Robinson suggests implementation the “organic education”. Education, in his view, should be seen as a biological system and therefore people need to provide the appropriate conditions to ensure that they reached the success.
