http://www.ted.com A must-see for every parent and teacher. Education guru Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining (and profoundly moving) case for creating an education system that nurtures creativity, rather than undermining it. Sir Ken Robinson is author of “Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative,” and a leading expert on innovation in education and business. (Recorded February, 2006 in Monterey, CA.)

  1. Hi corneilius, thanks for commenting and the link. I added a link to your music video on this topic and a couple other posts I’ve made to the end of this post.

  2. This is a great and compassionate talk – what most parents do not know is that the drive to ‘dumb down’ is the core agenda of all state sponsored education – if ya don’t believe me (and why should you?) check out the detailed history written by John Taylor Gatto at http://www.johntaylorgatto.com …..read it through, it is well referenced and fact checked, and it is quite a shock…
