Five Minutes with Sir Ken Robinson on Standardized Testing

Bonnie Hunt had Sir Ken Robinson on her show earlier this month to plug his book "The Element" and talk a bit about standardized testing. The segment is short - just five minutes long. Robinson is relaxed, the audience learns something, and Hunt makes it quite apparent she's grateful.


  1. Thanks for sharing this wonderful video!! Ken Robinson is one of the people who have been trying to share the importance of rethinking the current educational systems and, why not say, the way society ranks people.

  2. He needs to be speaking to Julia Gillard - deputy Australian Prime Minister who is pushing a national curriculum and testing.

  3. Thanks, Henrick and Anon. Glad you enjoyed. I especially liked the way Sir Ken brought this message to a mass audience in such a relaxed but articulate way. There's tremendous value in passion, but sometimes a casual chat can have just as much impact.
