Do schools kill creativity?

Back in April I made a post about the TED talks, and I was delighted in class on Thursday when David Cutler brought up one of my favorite speakers: Sir Ken Robinson.

As the video description says, Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity. I think this is exactly the kind of social change David was talking about--using the arts to inspire and solve problems. In fact, the TED talks are all about how to solve major world problems through a variety of ways, and there are many related to the importance of the arts.
