This talk, by John Hardy about the Green School in Bali, is quite interesting.
He’s not a great public speaker. He’s not physically attractive; he might be the ugliest TED talker you’ve ever seen. He’s wearing a skirt, or hakama pants, and it’s less attractive than it sounds.
But he’s got a point. I look around at the concrete walls of my school, and the elegant bamboo frames of his, and the glories of his school gardens, their cows, their pigs, their relationship with the land and the people who live nearby, and I think…
Wow. We’re going to have some ‘splainin’ to do about our failure to build beautiful schools for the last hundred years.
