Had a very interesting conversation today with Jeroen Boschma about education, one of the things missing he says is improvisation... He said it and I realized 'Yes, that's true!!'...
This guy explains it so much better then I ever could:

Last week my parents gave me an idea, not directly by telling me, but by inspiring and surprising me. They are both teachers, with many many years of experience. So I figured it wouldn't be strange to talk to them and get their opinion of what should change in the education system.
In the beginning I didn't get a clear vision of what it was, I think they assumed that I knew what their ideas were about education and how it's supossed to be. But when I asked them to explain it to me, slowly a wave of knowledge and experience came flowing towards me and all I could think was 'wow, I wish I had a camera now, because this is worth sharing'.
So I will! Hopefully the camera doesn't make them nervous (nee toch vader? :-)
Then I thought, maybe that's what I can do this month, share visions from all different kind of people here in the Netherlands. Teachers, strategists, students etc. And see if there is a common goal or dream, a clear idea of where we should go to and how. In a sense documenting my own travel, because since this is such a broad topic, I noticed I myself need to learn more before I can perform any practical action. The problem, dream and how we can get there needs to become clear first.
As a start I contacted Karim Amrani, Yoram Mekking, Toine Andernach and Jeroen Boschma. They are all very different with very different backgrounds. I'm curious.
