LB 1590.5 .R64 2015
“In Creative Schools, Ken Robinson expands upon his famous TED talk “How Schools Kill Creativity” and presents groundbreaking, practical solutions to a critical issue for our nation: how to transform our troubled educational system.
At a time when standardized testing businesses are raking in huge profits, when many schools are struggling, and students and educators everywhere are suffering under the strain, Robinson points the way forward. He argues for an end to our outmoded industrial educational system and proposes a highly personalized, organic approach that draws on today’s unprecedented technological and professional resources to engage all students, develop their love of learning, and enable them to face the real challenges of the twenty-first century.
Filled with anecdotes, observations, case histories, innovative research, and recommendations from professionals around the country who are on the front line of transformative education – and written with Robinson’s trademark wit and engaging style – Creative Schools will inspire teachers, parents, and policy makers alike to rethink the real nature and purpose of education.”
