Do Schools Kill Creativity?

Sometimes you've got to let everything go--purge yourself.
If you are unhappy with anything...whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free,
your true creativity, your true self comes out.
~~Tina Turner, American Singer

In this short, entertaining lecture focused on creativity and the failings of current day education, Sir Ken Robinson presented the somewhat scary truth about education systems and how they affect creativity. It is a pleasure to watch and absolutely worth the few minutues of your time to listen.

Surely, I am blessed and feel great about the choice to homeschool and being able to take these types of issues into consideration in our life journey, cultivating talents, and rethinking our view of intelligence.

On a separate note, a friend has created and is selling an absolutely marvelous, comprehensive, creative planner. If you are crying out for help in organizing your life, this next best thing is for you.

Happy living!

True learning-learning that is permanent and useful,that leads to intelligent action and further learning, can arise only out of the experience, interest, and concerns of the learner.
John Holt
Real heroes are men who fall, fail and are flawed, but win out in the end because they stayed true to their ideals, beliefs and commitments.
