The day before yesterday I was hosting a mentorship dinner table for Global Entrepreneurship Week, and one of the questions I got from a participant was about education. I admit, my views on education are a bit extreme, because I think – formal – education as a factor of success is extremely overrated. I explained my point of view to the participants at the table as best I could.
You can read my opinion on formal education on a blog post I wrote a year and a half ago here (I highly recommend that you do) Anyway, this morning, when I scrolled through my Facebook newsfeed I saw a great video that talks about the need to have a paradigm shift with regards to education. It’s by Sir Ken Robinson. I really enjoyed watching it, and I thought you might too. It’s very interesting and entertaining, and great food for thought.
Let me know what you think!
