How should we “push” children in developing countries to go to school, when jobs or lives in crime offer them more immediate gratification?

How has the traditional educational system failed us?

Is there a way to reinvent the school system?

In this fascinating TED talk, Charles Leadbeater discusses how he went looking for new and radical ways of teaching and learning – and found them in some very unusual places.

He explains the evolving shifts in thinking on how to motivate children in the developing world to go to, or stay in, school.

He’s also a funny and entertaining speaker. Enjoy!
