Ken Robinson: How to escape education's death valley
Yes indeed, a quote to which many people (around the world) can relate, and this fact says a lot about the universality of educational malfunctioning and restriction of choice in making the best out of it. Thank you for pointing out the very sensitive fact of children's expectations and the disappointments (in some cases even trauma) that can impair their capacities and shape their view not only toward School but Education and learning in general. There are very good examples in Europe of successful Educational Systems from which all the world can learn a lot (e.g: Finland). I mentioned the System because , even though individuals alone can have an impact on small scale or raise awareness on the key issue and give ideas/solutions, a whole transformational System is needed to really revolutionize Education.

Ken Robinson: How to escape education's death valley
“"Education" is a thing you get past and forget about as quickly as possible. This is particularly true of elementary and secondary education, of course…. I began to remember what it had been like: the tremendous excitement of the first couple of years, when kids imagine that great secrets are going to be unfolding before them, then the disappointment that gradually sets in when you begin to realize the truth: There’s plenty of learning to do, but it’s not the learning you wanted. It’s learning to keep your mouth shut, learning how to avoid attracting the teacher’s attention when you don’t want it, learning not to ask questions, learning how to pretend to understand, learning how to tell teachers what they want to hear, learning to keep your own ideas and opinions to yourself, learning how to look as if you’re paying attention, learning how to endure the endless boredom.” - Daniel Quinn, Providence
