Ken Robinson: How Schools Kill Creativity (TED Talks)

Sir Ken Robinson’s TED talk “How Schools Kill Creativity” is really resonating with me, perhaps because I’m a relatively newly minted father, but also because of experiences of my own education.

In this 2006 talk, Robinson expounds in hilarious and insightful fashion about how the education systems worldwide are mostly geared towards producing candidates for the suitable for employment in the 19th century era of industrialization.

“My contention is that creativity now is as important in education as literacy,and we should treat it with the same status.”
