Reforming Schools: Most Likely To Succeed

School reform is a topic that seems to transcend the ages however it seems that the advent of a new century combined with a the ‘technological revolution’ has spawned another surge in the debate. One of the dichotomies that has emerged surrounds the tension between a need to measure and quantify outcomes and a desire to promote divergent and creative thinking. As with many arguments in society a range of champions have emerged. Included in the creative/divergent camp Sir Ken Robinson holds a prominent place alongside a number of other luminaries who have featured in TED talks and elsewhere.

One Potato Productions has taken up the argument and has created a documentary “Most Likely To Succeed“. To get a feel for the docco check out this trailer.

To get another point of view on the film check out this quite elongated review of it from TheLipTV.
