Ken Robinson in a TED Talk about education etc.
Very funny to watch - some interesting thoughts.
He is strongly advocating the importance of creativity in our world, therefore necessarily also in school, where as he says in all cultures is a hierarchy of classes: science, math, language first, arts later, and in arts, music & literature before dance ...
If a marsian would watch our education, he would conclude that all train to be university professor ... but for most things in life we need our body.
Another thought, we cannot predict the world even in 5 years - but we have to train the children for well later!
