NOTE FROM MODERATOR: This YouTube video, produced by Marion Brady, is a simple very well done video message to today’s students, educators and policy makers. I would highly recommend that educators and leaders and policy makers for public education be made aware of the video.
For 77 years Marion Brady has been immersed in public education in numerous roles, from student to teacher to text book author to informed commentator on public education. His previous blog entries at this space appear at April 24 and May 27, 2009. Marion lays out a very simple, but very essential prescription for necessary change in Public Education practice to fit the present day and future needs. He contends that modern public education policy originated in the 1890s, and has inadequately changed in the well over 100 years since.
