How to escape education's death valley

3 Principles on which human life flourishes:
1. Human beings are naturally different and diverse.

Schools are encouraged to find out what kids can do across a very narrow spectrum of achievement.
True education has to give equal rights to arts, humanities and physical education. 
Kids prosper best with a broad curriculum that celebrates their various talents, not just a small range of them.

2. Curiosity.
Engine of education.
Teaching is a creative profession. 
Great teachers - mentor, stimulate, provoke, engage.
Education is about learning, no learning, no education. education is to get people to learn.
Teacher's role, facilitate learning.

Standardised test - should not be the dominant culture of an education.
Should be diagnostic. 

3. Inherently creative.
