Ken Robinson Interview - Do Schools Kill Creativity?

I got this interview with the brilliant Ken Robinson off our Al Jazeera player on our Current Events page. An interview with Riz Khan. He hits so many fine points!

Ken relates; Education is a terrible way to find out what you're good at. Sound strange, right?

But think about this; how many of you are currently working in the subject you liked most in school. Not the one you excelled in, the one you liked.

In our very streamlined public education system, children around the world are taught the maths and sciences, but how many of them are taught art, painting or dance with the same vigour?

Let's discuss below. See the original TED Talk in our Featured Videos section.
