The news is great that at grass roots level teachers have woken up to this and are motivating our kids to wake up. BUT what about Gordon? Cameron? Education Education and Education? What is going on?

Quoting the video clip: “China has more gifted and talented students than we have students.”
Someone needs to put creativity back into Education, Education Education!
