5.0 out of 5 stars A welcome, long overdue re-assessment of the nature of empathy and the value of the arts in the education of our young people., 28 Oct. 2013

This review is from: Trivium 21c: Preparing young people for the future with lessons from the past (Paperback)
Martin Robinson's intelligent and sympathetic consideration of the role of drama, art, history, music and literature in the education of young people is one that has been needed for some time to counter balance the ridiculous assertion that we don't really need to teach these subjects as they will be 'acquired'.
Society knows that without the key issue of empathy which these subjects encourage we shall raise a generation of young people who think that the X Factor is art. Choice does not mean discernment, and Martin knows it. He also gives us a wealth of anecdote that proves how important story telling is in the development of balanced minds. There is always a place for fantasy as long as it is not always someone elses but yours. The key educational term of the moment is 'growth mindset' and this work is a refreshing example of it in practice which should be read by all educators for the 21st century.
