Why taking choir kept me from being a Valedictorian: Austin Channell at TEDxColumbus - ... - 44 views

  •  
    This is about more than just taking choir in high school - it is a fundamental problem in our educational system examined here by a high school senior. Only 12 minutes long.  When my sons were in HS (they graduated in the mid 1990's), I remember their discussions of just exactly this problem. He offers some solutions, but no quick fixes.
