The 4 characteristics of a hero are brave, noble, selfless and perseverance.
Ken is brave because he is taking a stand for the younger generation, helping them and going against other peoples opinions despite all the disagreement, just to help others.
He's noble because he didn't use violence or hurtful words to get his message through. He's also join many projects around the world that help young adults find what they're passionate about and help them succeed towards that goal.
Ken is selfless because he's speaking up for the younger generation who can't say anything because no one will listen or the children that are too scared.
He shows perseverance because he's been doing this for a long time now and he hasn't given up/stopped his battle to help children around the world.
1) They should be focusing on everyones diversity by offering a good curriculum and encouraging their different ways of learning and how/what they actually want to learn.
2) Encourage curiosity through creative thinking which is basically just good teacher training and developement.
3) Focus on awakening creativity through other/different processes that put less attention on standardized testing, giving the responsibility for defining the course of education to individual schools and teachers.
He believes that the current education system encourages obedience and just standard learning than creative approches to learning
Robinson emphasizes that we can only succeed if we recognize that education is an organic system, not a mechanical one.
