HOw to escape Education's Death Valley

Robinson is too hard on theADHD issue- but his critique of what is wrong and poisonous about our education system is spot on:



"There is wonderful work happening in this country-- but it is happening in spite of the dominant culture- NOT because of it".

Somewhere in there there is a particularly nasty (and accurate) comment that most education nowadays gets students doing "low grade clerical work" and expecting to be engaged.

A fair call.
