Schools Killing Creativity?

The concept of “education” has always been of great interest to me and its importance in my life is, and will remain, paramount.  The beauty of learning is that it comes in many forms – through formal study, through conversations with others, through experiences – it’s all around us and all we have to do is allow the power of osmosis to work its magic.

I recently came across an amazing TED video by Sir Ken Robinson discussing his position on why he believes schools are killing creativity.  It’s incredibly insightful and definitely makes you think.  This video was originally published back in 2006 but, true to its form, has tremendous merit even today as we look upon our dwindling educational system.

Enjoy the video – it’s FANTASTIC!  More importantly, I would love to hear your comments on what you think.
