“The other big issue is conformity. We have built our education systems on the model of fast food… You know there are two models of quality assurance in catering.

And we have sold ourselves into a fast food model of education, and it’s impoverishing our spirit and our energies as much as fast food is depleting our physical bodies.” – Sir Ken Robinson
