It is with a heavy heart that we have heard about the passing of Sir Ken Robinson yesterday. Our sincere condolences to his family.
We are so grateful to have met you and to have collaborated with you. We are still tremendously proud of your foreword to our book “What Is Your Dream Machine? How Children Change Education Worldwide“. It wasn’t just a foreword, he insisted to see the material as it developed. It was indeed a unique experience to work with him on our book.
Sir Ken gave voice to all those who believed in a better way, was a friend to the subversives and a beacon to this who understood education’s true moral purpose. His total commitment to education, creativity, the arts and human potential were carved from his own life and the challenges he had experienced and overcome from is childhood. We are all so lucky that his epiphany, his element, was to work with us and all our children for their futures.
We owe Ken so much. His legacy in many ways is us and the best we can do now, is through our behaviours, our commitment to each other, our children and the future, do what we can to live by his principles and endeavour to make him proud.
