Don’t confuse my criticism of the educational systems with me somehow being anti-education. I’m pro-education, in fact I’m an ardent advocate for education in the form of non-fiction/fiction reading, the study of languages, world travel, activism and art- whatever expands your mind and gets you thinking.
Here’s my problem with typical “education”
The high educational debts will cost more than individual happiness, it’s going to have long term impact on growth and lifestyle sustainability for America at large.
Ken Robinson has two books that I plan on reading-The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything and Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative as his TED talk was fascinating and I think he has more insight to offer.
Do you give much thought to creativity, or do you value something else? Is there anything positive or negative that stands out in your schooling experience that helped/hindered your career or creativity? What do you think of Ken Robinson’s ideas, do they matter?
