‘Schools are still killing creativity’ says Sir Ken Robinson

Schools expert and champion of creative education, Sir Ken Robinson, is continuing in his mission to help us all make the case for creative education with his latest book,‘You, Your Child and School’ – a must-read for anyone interested in the way we educate children – including through the arts/music/creativity.

Sir Ken had no idea of the impact his first TED talk, “Do schools kill creativity?”, would have. Delivered to a small audience in California in 2006, it has since been watched more than 50 million times, becoming the most-viewed Ted video in history with more than double the hits garnered by the presentations of Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs put together.

During his TED talk, Sir Ken Robinson made an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.
