Better Off TED

So, I wanted to take this opportunity to share one of my favorite YouTube / TED videos of all time. As a former high school teacher who often railed against the current high-stakes-testing craze and dumbing down of curriculum, I “felt” Sir Ken Robinson’s video at a deep level. It is a simple but profound statement about the death of creativity and original thought in schools, and is quite a polemic against the anesthetizing force that is industrial-revolution era education. I believe it should be recommended viewing for all education-reformers, parents, teachers and those in administration.
