Schools Kill Creativity.

This TED talk, here, by Sir Ken Robinson is a straight-forward and perfectly blunt look at how the American school system kills students' creativity;
the path we took to get to this point, and where we might be headed.

If you are a parent, an educator, an artist, an economist... I know that this topic resonates deeply with you.
Let's teach our children to think laterally, rather than linearly.
Let's value our children's thinking.

If you're not prepared to be wrong you will never come up with anything original.
-Sir Ken Robinson
