Teaching creativity is as important as teaching literacy

This is a video of Sir Ken Robinson's presentation at the excellent TED Talks series, in which he makes the case that we are educating creativity out of people. His basic premise is that public education needs to prioritize creativity as much as it prioritizes left-brain endeavors. He makes an eloquent and compelling argument.

It is very much worth your time.
