Not Broken, Just Obsolete

From Sugata Mitra: Our schools aren't broken, they're just obsolete.  

They're not broken - our schools do what they were designed to do: they teach our children to sit still, to do what they're told, to be on time, to read, to write, to add, to multiply.

 

They are obsolete: we don't need them any more. We don't need people that can sit still, do what they're told, be on time, read, write, add, and multiply.

 

We need people with insatiable curiosity, people with the courage to ask questions when they're not sure they can find the answers. We need people who are so motivated to solve the problems of our world, that they teach themselves whatever skills they need.

 

We need bravery. We need curiosity. We need creation.
