"This animate was adapted from a talk given at the RSA by Sir Ken Robinson, world-renowned education and creativity expert and recipient of the RSA's Benjamin Franklin award.

I found the message of this video to be very resonating.
I'd only learned of Montessori last summer from a comment under the RSA Animate. Someone said that they feel for the rest of us, but they couldn't really sympathize because they went to a Montessori school. That struck a research frenzy in me, because my husband and I were discussing homeschooling our future children. Then, by luck, I learned of this book by listening to NPR during a 10 minute drive to an appointment. This is a book written, not by an educator, but by a parent who is seeing results in his children.
I've had some really good teachers growing up, and they've made a wonderful difference in my life, but that doesn't erase the hours of years I spent with my brain on autopilot. Those wonderful teachers of mine might have really thrived on a personal level, might have felt even more fulfilled in their careers, if they had heard of the Montessori method. I know several education majors, and I'm kinda sad that they haven't heard of this during their studies.
At some point, I would like to read the works written by Maria Montessori herself. Trevor Eissler described it as a somewhat dry read for the general public, but having gone through the education machine, I think I can handle it.
