Great Learning happens in Groups

An anti-establishment teacher frustrated with 'system' and also with a huge ego problem, has been- quite rightly- asking what's wrong with our Education System. I could tell her in a short answer-- lack of adequate funds to pay for quality education... like a lot of things.. the horrible 'slave' mentality of someone else providing the grunt work and paying the locals to 'work' raises it's ugly head. Unlike Singapore which identified early-on that the way ahead for a small nation was to be highly educated and luckily for them - their investment paid off as technology boomed.
So I digress- this is an interesting video by an Educator looking at what's wrong with the system-- however he hasn't put forward any alternatives-- suggestions anyone?
