Do schools kill creativity???

Hi everyone! I'd like to share something with you. I stumbled across this amazing video on Youtube and found it absolutely amazing! It'll be really interesting for either those families with kids or without.



Sir Ken Robinson is a highly motivational speaker, I love his British humor, too! :) His ideas on creativity in school or rather lack of creativity (modern as well as schools in the past) resonate so much with me. If you think of it what he says is so true...Watch the video and let me know what you think!

WOW!!!! Lana - thank you so very much for sharing. That was inspiring, uplifting and life changing. Every human being is intelligent in a unique way and when others are patient and accepting to that it allows each individual to shine.

I had forgotten about the "TED" conference. Would that be awesome to attend or what! That was a great presentation. I completely agree that as busy parents and educators it is all too easy to mis-read a child's creativity and energy and rush to medication or counselling to deal with "non-traditional" behaviours that may be talents in disguise. "A weakness is a talent wrongly applied."
