Quote

“It is, in fact, nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate little plant – aside from stimulation – stands mainly in need of freedom; without this it goes to rack and ruin without fail. It is a very grave mistake to think that the engagement of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty.” -Albert Einstein (courtesy of today’s Monday Morning Memo)

Apparently Albert Einstein shared Ken Robinson’s perspective. So the question becomes, how much evidence, cajoling and dissatisfaction in the heart of humanity must we endure before our businesses and the education systems that feed them are changed?
