She isn't sick...she's a dancer.

Sir Ken Robison! His speeches are dynamic and laced with humour.This video meant alot to me personally as a parent and as an educator.
Today's education system indeed caters to technological needs and we look upon intelligence as equivalent to academic achievemment.However, Sir Ken Robinson chooses to define intelligence as diverse, dynamic and distinct.
Also impicit in the speech is the different ways boys and girls learn. Yet we tend to treat them the same in the classroom.

Another section I'd like to refer to is how "we", the doctors and edcuators in cohort invented ADHD because we can't figure out how to figure out students who can't sit still...
