  • 3. The Need For Reform Andrew Ashton 25/02/2010 Kids are certainly not too stupid for school. Perhaps school is too stupid for them. Too stupid, too slow, too uncolourful, too mono for a bunch of kids for whom speed, excitement, words, pictures, sound and film are all parts of acquiring and passing on information, all ways of telling stories. At some point, decisions about the way we educate our kids will have to take a much more radical stance than arguments over whether A-levels are too easy, or if vocational subjects have the same value as proper, academic subjects. The form, content and method of knowledge delivery within schools is out of sync with the way that people learn elsewhere, with what they value, with what counts in the world. (Barham 2004, p234)
