Dear Campus School Families,
Sir Ken Robinson is a passionate advocate for the primacy of creativity in education. He argues that schools too often stifle the creative and imaginative impulses of students, essentially fostering cultures of compliance instead of creativity. The following is one of his TED talks – 19 minutes of witty, perceptive, and humane observations about human flourishing, education, learning, and creativity. His thoughts about what really matters in schools resonate deeply with our own mission and learning goals; it is good to have someone of Robinson’s stature affirming our approach and philosophy. I hope you can find the time to watch and listen to his talk – I think you will find it illuminating and inspirational.
