Ken Robinson: Do schools kill creativity?

“I think math is very important, but so is dance. Children dance all the time if they’re allowed to, we all do. We all have bodies, don’t we? Did I miss a meeting?”

Check out this amazing and funny TEDx talk about how we need more artists in the world and why we need to change how schools are preparing children for their future. Their seems to be an idea that success in the world is only possible if your maths marks are good. Instead we should be encouraging children’s development in character and creativity. Ken Robinson also tells the story of Choreographer Gillian Lynne who is noted for her CATS choreography and made a successful career. She originally was thought to have ADHD.
