Episode 114: "Do Schools Kill Creativity?"
5 days ago
With over 41 million views, Sir Ken Robinson's TED Talk "Do schools kill creativity?" is worthy of the attention. In his profound, sincere and often humorous evaluation of the education system, he explores the effect it has on the self-esteem and creative explorations of children. We react to the points he makes through the lens of our own experiences in education. As Robinson points out, our society has developed a system whose limits and expectations excludes valuable human ability and perspective. Are there ways in which educational standards could shift to appreciate individual viewpoints and creative outlook? How has education evolved to prize correct answers over genuine learning through mistakes?

an OK show!
Technical Ability: Competent
Structure: none, really - just discussing a topic.
Hosts: Meh. Interesting people, but basically share the same viewpoint. Show tends to be the two hosts echoing each others' thoughts. Needs an opposing host (a woman? a conservative?) to be truly engaging.
