World's Going On?!
Welcome to a new series aimed at discussing some pressing issues of today.

According to Sir Ken Robinson (http://bit.ly/1glrr1H), schools kill creativity. Look - when kids are born, they've got great curiosity and want to try everything that's around. But as they turn 5 or 6, they ought to change.

Maciek Kautz talks to Silvia Camarda (http://bit.ly/1qw6nNb), the principal of 'Villa Montessori' school in Poznan. She lets kids have more choice when it comes to what they want to study - and when. Both Silvia and Joanna Rada (businesswoman, coach, www.joannarada.pl) agree that expecting all kids to be the same is a big mistake. Alek Baj, the owner of 'Element' publishing house, will explain how Ken Robinson's ideas may translated here in Poland.

You'll also hear from Kurt Montgomery (US, www.spark.edu.pl) who's a big opponent of the grading system at any school. "One size fits all" approach never works.
