John Stuart Mill wrote, “That so few dare to be eccentric marks the chief danger of the time.”
I think Sir Ken Robinson would agree with Mill. In this witty and intellectually stimulating TED Talk, Robinson explores the idea that creativity is crucial to progressive human existence, and that the lack of creative outlets in the current school curriculum could lead to our downfall.
(Robinson’s TED Talk posted above was so popular, that he was invited back to TED four years later to continue the conversation. Here is his second talk about education entitled “Bring on the Revolution.” )
