Sir Ken Robinson Says Schools Kill Creativity

Do schools kill creativity? From my experience, Yes, they do, big time. Sir Ken thinks they do, too. He is a funny guy, in a stand-up comedy kind of way, and in a professorial kind of way, too. He makes audaciously accurate observations, like we ought to value creativity as much as we value literacy. He jokes that education is a process to create university professors. He gets serious with the observation that the purpose of public education is to provide cogs for industry. He gets hopeful when he says it’s time that we must educate our children in body and mind, and encourage creativity.
