At a time when we need our citizen's creativity the most, our education system is sapping it out of our children so completely and so consistently.
Sir Ken Robinson, a former (reformed?) professor who now speaks out against our current mode of education in schools and colleges, has a very engaging, witty message for us all. He may be addressing an American audience (the TED Conference in California) but what he says applies to many of our educational institutions worldwide.
Be sure to check out the other speakers at TED over the years, including Seth Godin, Jeff Bezos, William McDonough and others.
