Sir Ken Robinson is an author, speaker and international advisor on education and the arts. He argues that our current schools are killing the creativity in our children, and he explains why an entire overhaul of the education system is necessary.
This week the Texas Senate will continue debating the controversial bill that will cut public school financing. There are many things at stake in this bill, including major reductions to the arts programs.
As we confront a threat to the arts in the face of state-wide spending cuts, Robinson makes a crucial argument for why creativity matters as much as literacy. Check out this video of Robinson’s TED talk on YouTube.
