Back to School


By now all the kiddies are back in school – a day which most parents view with a mix of relief and regret.  It seems like it will be a relief to have a quiet house for a few hours, but the tradeoff is the end of summer and the renewal of schedules and the dreaded homework

When you have a few moments…I think you will enjoy this TED talk.   It’s an amusing, but serious discussion about creativity and the educational system.  So brew yourself a cup of tea, put up your feet and enjoy 20 minutes…

  1. Luckily I wasn’t rushing through the blogosphere today and I clicked on the video link. AWESOME! What a totally awesome message. If only it would sink in. It struck me the speech was made in 2006 and is still relevant today. Thanks so much for your post today.

  2. Excellent! My little darlings are back to school also, so yes, I have more time while they are gone, but after school can be quite hectic sometimes. I have one who is home with me most of the time because he has graduated and decided that college is not for him. (He does have a full time job and help with chores still, thank goodness!) Loved the TED talk and posted it to my facebook because I wholeheartedly agree with Sir Robinson. I read an article about him about a month ago and am glad to learn more about his thoughts on education. Thanks for the great post! A great book to read is Imagine: How Creativity Works, by Jonah Lehrer.
