Sir Ken Robinson, author and speaker, poses the question, “Do schools kill creativity?” I found this video to be very interesting and right on. I regret that it has taken me this long to find. It was taped January 2007. I hope that all teachers, administrators, and school board members have already seen the video. If not, watch it here.
The Arts are being pushed aside and most courses are designed to teach the left side of the brain only. The focus on standardized testing is limiting the subjects and skills taught, especially in small school districts. Our education system in the United States has many real problems. Most people can see the problems, but can anyone find the solution?
