I FOLLOW with great enthusiasm the ideas and concepts of the author and world renowned educationalist Sir Kenneth Robinson. His notion of characterising education as an organic system rather than a mechanical one and belief that achieving a successful school administration is a matter of fostering a resourceful climate instead of a system of command and control are relevant in this day and age.

Robinson’s TED Talk presentation titled “Do schools kill creativity?” is the most watched of all time. In his book of the same title, Robinson suggests that to engage and succeed, education should foster diversity and individualisation through the learning process, and promote curiosity through creative teaching.
