Overview

Do Schools Kill Creativity? is the most popular TED talk of all time, with over 40 million views. University of Warwick professor Ken Robinson has dedicated most of his life to transforming education, especially with respect to the arts.

Robinson has objected to our current school system for years. In Creative Schools, Robinson outlines how we can fundamentally shift our perspective to help shape schools that actually teach kids what they need to know to navigate the real world.

Critical thinking skills, creativity, and financial skills should matter just as much as maths and writing do. They're primordial skills when it comes to finding a job, discovering one's purpose, and remaining financially stable. Let your children embrace these skills outside of the school system if need be, so they can thrive later on in life.

"Many schools are organized as they are because they always have been, not because they must be."
