Sir Ken Robinson on educating children out of creativity

My daughter shared this link yesterday and I would highly recommend that you watch it. Robinson talks about how the arts are always at the bottom of the totem pole when it comes to educating children and why this shouldn’t be. I know in our county, when they cut the school budget, even the sports programs out rank the arts. So sad. What struck me as I listened to this man is how homeschooling provides the perfect stage for what he is saying. He is also a witty speaker. Watch his short presentation here.
