Questioning the System

A colleague sent me a link to this video in which Sullibreezy questions the education system and the value of exams

I Will Not Let An Exam Result Decide My Fate||Spoken Word

He raises some valid points about the purpose of education and the way that we assess learning. I like his questioning of why we treat all students as if they are the same when they differ greatly in their strengths and weaknesses. The question he doesn't answer is what should education be in the future. That is for us to decide.
