What's worth learning?

I enjoyed this short thoughtful piece (although not necessarily agreeing with all that he has to say) from Professor David Perkins on the question 'What's worth learning?'. Professor Perkins feels that 90% of what is taught is a waste of time!

Watch the short You Tube clip to find out what is meant by 'Understandings of wide scope'; this being what Professor Perkins feels should be being taught in schools.
