Ken Robinson says schools kill creativity

Ken Robinson, innovation expert and author of Out of Our Minds: Learning to Be Creative, overcame polio to become one of the world's leaders in the development of creativity in business, education and human resources.

Sir Ken Robinson says that a schismatic view of the mind has marginalized many people's talents, creating a crisis of human resources. In his opinion, "Human a bounty for all kinds of corporations and institutions,".

In the following video, Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.
