never taught traditionally, but I realized I was critical of it even when
I was in grade one. In public school I would watch the teachers and how
they taught. I could see they were not getting their message across, see
when people were being bored. I always wanted to be a teacher."
Dr. Glasberg goes on to say
that to be effective it is important to place one's self in the student's
shoes, considering how they look at what is being presented. He is also
concerned about what a teacher may be trying to accomplish:."Fulfil

teaching should be done to bring the students out of themselves, educate
them. That's what education originally meant.".And

to repeat and remember.
One should know how to think
well and wisely, so decisions important to life can be handled when circumstances
necessitate adjustments be made.
To bring out the specialness
of each individual is Dr. Glasberg's effective thrust in his teaching.
He goes on to say a great teacher is one who uses what knowledge or understanding
the student possesses and draws that forward. The goal was to make the
student more of an active participant in education.
"The real trick is to take
risks, to try to link up where the students are at that time.".says
Glasberg emphasizes critical
thinking and dislikes the traditional method of memorization.
His aim is for students to
really learn and enjoy the world of ideas. Dr. Glasberg is concerned that
knowledge be not just taught, but presented in a way which is both interesting
and exciting leading to heartfelt acceptance.

Education today focuses
the attention increasingly upon specialized concerns, thereby limiting
expansionability necessary to fully develop the brain. Generally and apart

than an educing.

The educator / learner's
relationship must proceed beyond information embracing emotional encouragement.
we get to know that oneness from which
all else is known, that one master formula governing the entire universe,
and what is that?
Proper education would lead
one to see that we are like branches of
a tree, like facets of a diamond, the diamond being the intelligent
energy of the universe supporting
all things. We see that each of us is a facet, a fractal as it were,
a pattern component in the unity of all things. Here we see that all
other created things including even the so-called.four
forces, including all the stars, all the galaxies, all the air, all
everything we can think and know of, are facets of this same diamond. Think
of it like a flower. The flower is all there is. The petals are us, as
much of the flower as is any of it.
Proper education would include
meditation. Here human awareness is exposed to the totality of knowledge
within, that which all comes from the diamond, is the diamond as it
shines from each facet. Here at the core of everything, transcendence
of all natural law occurs and we can do things regarded by those of ordinary
consciousness as phenomenons. One
comes into knowing that by which everything else is known.

Love is of higher consciousness levels. Schools have mostly students and

to it, you have entropy.
In many ways an 'out of tune'

minds on where students will spend most of their lives, the future!
Education is enjoyable and learning is easier for those with a clear concept
of their place in the future. If education is going to be transformative
it must actively engage the learner.

the bit where the three kings come in.."They
come in bearing gifts and they bring gold, frankincense and myrhh. This
really happened: We were sitting there and we thought they just went out
of sequence. The three boys came in, little 4-year-olds with tea towels
on their heads and they put these boxes down and the first boy said "I
bring you gold". The second boy said "I bring you myrhh". And the third
boy said "Frank sent this".
What these things have in
common is that kids will take a chance. If they don't know, they'll have
a go. Am I right? They're not frightened of being wrong.
all to often dampens this.
Dr. Sir Ken:."I
heard a great story recently, I love telling it, of a little girl who was
in a drawing lesson, she was 6 and she was at the back, drawing and the
teacher said this little girl hardly paid attention and in this drawing
lesson she did. The teacher was fascinated and she went over to her and
she said, "What are you drawing?" and the girl said "I'm drawing a picture
of God." And the teacher said, "But nobody knows what God looks like."
And the girl said "They will in a minute."
"What we do know is, if you're
not prepared to be wrong, you'll never come up with anything original.
And by the time they get to be adults, most kids have lost that capacity.
They have become frightened of being wrong. And we run our companies like
this, by the way, we stigmatize
mistakes. And we're now running national education systems where mistakes
are the worst thing you can make. And the result is, we are educating people
out of their creative capacities. And by the time they get to be adults,
most kids have lost that capacity. They have become frightened of being
"Picasso once said this,
he said that all children are born artists. The problem is to remain an
artist as we grow up. I believe this passionately, that we don't grow into
creativity, we grow out of it. Or rather, we get educated out of it. So
why is this? You don't think of Shakespeare being a child, do you? Shakespeare
being 7? I never thought of it. I mean, he was 7 at some point; he was
in somebody's English class, wasn't he?
"When you travel around the
world: Every education system on Earth has the same heirarchy of subjects.
Every one,. Doesn't matter where you go, you'd think it would be otherwise,
but it isn't. At the top are mathematics and languages, then the humanities
and the bottom are the arts. Everywhere on Earth.
"As children grow up we start
to educate them progressively from the waist up. And then we focus on their
heads. And slightly to one side.
"Now our education system
is predicated on the idea of academic ability. And there's a reason. The
whole system was invented round the world when there were no public systems
of education, really before the 19th century. They all came into being
to meet the needs of industrialism.
"So the hierarchy is rooted
on two ideas: Number one, that the most useful subjects for work are at
the top. So you were probably steered benignly
away from things at school when you were a kid, things you liked, on the
grounds that you would never get a job doing that. Is that right? Don't
do music, you're not going to be a musician; don't do art, you're not going
to be an artist. Benign advice which is now, profoundly mistaken. The whole
world is engulfed in a revolution.
"And the second is, academic
ability, which has really come to dominate our view of intelligence because
the universities designed the system in their image. If you think
of it, the whole system of public education around the world is a protracted
process of university entrance. And the consequence is that many highly
talented, brilliant, creative people think they're not good enough, because
the thing they were good at in school wasn't valued, or was actually stigmatized.
And I think we can't afford to go on that way.
"Now kids with degrees are
often heading home to carry on playing video games, because you need an
MA where the previous job required a BA and now you need a Ph.D for the
other. It's a process of academic inflation. And it indicates the whole
structure of education is shifting beneath our feet. We need to radically
rethink our view of intelligence.
"The brain isn't divided
into compartments. In fact, creativity, which I define as the process of
having original ideas that have value, more often than not comes about
through the interaction of different disciplinary ways of seeing things.
The brain intentionally has a a shaft of nerves that joins the two halves
of the brain called the corpus collosum, and it's thicker in women.
"I'm fascinated by how people
got to be there. It's really prompted by a conversation I had with a wonderful
woman who maybe most people have never heard of, she's called Gillian Lynne,
have you heard of her? Some have. She's a choreographer and everybody knows
her work. She did Cats and Phantom of the Opera, she's wonderful.
I used to be on the board of the Royal Ballet, in England, as you can see
and Gillian and I had lunch one day and I said Gillian, how'd you get to
be a dancer? And she said it was interesting, when she was at school, she
was really hopeless. And the school, in the 30s, wrote her parents and
said, "We think Gillian has a learning disorder." She couldn't concentrate,
she was fidgeting.
I think now they'd say she had ADHD. Wouldn't you? But this was the 1930s
and ADHD hadn't been invented at this point. It wasn't an available condition.
People weren't aware they could have that.
"Anyway she went to see this
specialist, in this oak-paneled room and she was there with her mother
and she was led and sat on a chair at the end and she sat on her hands
for 20 minutes while this doctor talked to her mother about all the problems
Gillian was having at school. And at the end of it, because she was disturbing
people, her homework was always late and so on, little kid of 8, in the
end, the doctor went and sat next to Gillian and said "Gillian I've listened
to all these things that your mother's told me and I need to speak to her
privately." He said "Wait here, we'll be back, we won't be very long" and
they went and left her.
"But as they went out the
room, he turned on the radio that was sitting on his desk and when they
got out the room, he said to her mother "Just stand and watch her." And
the minute they left the room she was on her feet, moving to the music.
And they watched for a few minutes and he turned to her mother and said,
"Mrs. Lynne, Gillian isn't sick; she's a dancer! Take her to a dance school.
"I said "What happened?"
"She said "She did. I can't
tell you how wonderful it was. We walked in this room and it was full of
people like me, people who couldn't sit still. People who had to move to
They did ballet, they did
tap, they did jazz, they did modern, they did contemporary. She was eventually
auditioned for the Royal Ballet School. She became a soloist. She had a
wonderful career at the Royal Ballet. She eventually graduated from the
Royal Ballet School and founded her own company, the Gillian Lynne Dance
Company and met Andrew Lloyd Weber.
"She's been responsible for
some of the most successful musical theater productions in history. She's
given pleasure to millions and she's a multimillionaire.
"Somebody else might have
put her on medication and told her to calm down.
"The future is to adopt a
new conception of human ecology, one in which we start to reconstitute
our conception of the richness of human capacity. We have to rethink the
fundamental principles on which we're educating our children.
"We need to see our creative
capacities for the richness they are and see our children for the hope
that they are. Our job is to help them make something of it. Thank you
