    >>from my notes about what Sir Ken Robison/Robinson said….Human talent is tremendously diversified. Time takes a different course if you are chasing what you are passionate about. When you love doing something, hours seem like minutes. Many leave education because it doesn’t feed their spirit. Industrial/Manufacturing model, based on linearity and conformity and ‘batching’ people, to a model based on principals of agriculture, human flourishing is organic not mechanical. Reforming education, customizing education to the circumstances of the people being taught. Customizing/Personalizing/Creating a movement in education. People will develop their own solutions with external support based on a personalized curriculum. We need to move from an industrialized education to an agriculturalized educational model.
