The Future of Education

“Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.” ~ Frank Zappa

"I don’t think anybody anywhere can talk about the future of their people or of an organization without talking about education. Whoever controls the education of our children controls our future." ~ Wilma Mankiller [First female Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation]

"Education doesn’t need to be reformed - it needs to be transformed. The key is not to standardize education, but to personalize it, to build achievement on discovering the individual talents of each child, to put students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions." ~ Sir Ken Robinson

"All children start their school careers with sparkling imaginations, fertile minds, and a willingness to take risks with what they think," he says. “Most students never get to explore the full range of their abilities and interests … Education is the system that’s supposed to develop our natural abilities and enable us to make our way in the world. Instead, it is stifling the individual talents and abilities of too many students and killing their motivation to learn.” ~ Sir Ken Robinson
