Monday Inspiration – “Our failing schools. Enough is enough!”
15 January 2016: posted by BigChange
Geoffrey Canada is head of the Harlem Children’s Zone in New York – a charity that supports children from a very young age all the way to college to help break the cycle of poverty. In this talk, he expresses his frustration about the education system that, despite its longevity, has failed too many children.
Bringing attention to that fact that change is very much possible, he pushes the question – why hasn’t education changed? Why, when we know that the current education system benefits some students more than others, have we failed to adapt and provide equal opportunities to all? Why aren’t we doing more to help all children thrive?
A motivating talk and something to think about on this glorious Monday morning!
