Stop punishing kids in primary schools for being wrong.
Ken Robinson + Kathryn Schulz = teach kids being wrong is not a bad thing.
Until we enter primary school, we learn through play. Experiment, explore, test ourselves, mirror heroes (parents and cartoons). At 2 years old we seriously push boundaries and our powers. And than it HAPPENS ; At primary schools our names start ending up on lists, making mistakes is punished. Being wrong is wrong from then on for the rest of our lives.
Can we stop doing that? Who knows how?
It's an idea I hope is spreading already as there are 136.000.000 toddlers of 2 years old who soon will be told wrong IS wrong.
