Ken Robinson On Schooling, Creativity… and what direction we need to head

Here is Lily with her creative writing.  We were practicing first person stories.

This man is amazing.  He puts a books worth of ideas into less than a 20 minute talk.  This is definitely worth the time to watch!   He is brilliant and funny.  (such a nice and hard to find combination)

Here is his talk from 2006

This really got me thinking on home schooling and just parenting.  What am I raising my kids to become?  He makes a very good point that kids that rank the highest in the current school system will be college professors.  Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I want my kid to excel and I want my education of them (or school) to help them excel in where they are gifted and where they want to go.

This is his follow up from 2010

Here is the link.

I don’t even know what to say to this or how to add to it.  I need to think and ponder on it more.  I agree with the man, I just need to figure out how it can change my parenting and schooling day to day.
