Sir Ken Robinson Invades Canada-Education Reform

Sir Ken Robinson expands on his TED talk on schools killing creativity. Schools are not in the business of discovering or encouraging passion. This guy is one hell of a speaker.

We have to ask ourselves;why not? What can we do to make it such a place? This is a big, difficult issue and I really think we need to start to think about it . . .what is truly scary in my opinion is that many people may not have any passions because they have been weeded out of them by upbringing etc.

Must viewing in my opinion, I hope you enjoy it!
