Friday math movie: The Studio School

Full video name: Geoff Mulgan: A short intro to the Studio School
I totally agree with this one. Studio Schools was developed by the same people who gave us the Open University concept. They asked a simple question - what would make teenagers fight to get into a school, rather than fight to get out?
It's fairly close to the apprenticeship model. I've always felt it's a shame that model disappeared.
The Studio School is not perfect, of course - but I'm not sure that any school system is perfect for everyone. The concept is certainly worth investigating, since it involves students in potentially more meaningful learning experiences than what happens in many conventional schools.
