This is an impressive speech. I have thought a lot of the ideas that he brings up and have wondered why nobody is addressing them. It is frustrating to be an educator when you want to teach in a particular way and then you are faced with standards, evaluations, and other impediments. Understand that I am for common core standards and accountability. These are needed, but to what extent do they become the overlords of education! I think its time we begin to really look at what motivates us to learn and teach--what kind of passions make us want to be educators. I like where Sir Ken Robinson is going in his speech! I think he is very practical and encouraging.
