Creative Schools by Sir Ken Robinson (6/52)

As a leading voice in the progressive education movement thanks to his TED talk, Robinson elucidates his vision for the future of education. He not only outlines the easy part of the argument, why we need change, but attempts to elucidate the how, even within the confined system. Although many of his examples are charter and specialized schools, he is broad enough at times to peak an idea through the murky haze. I appreciate his focus on reducing our adherence to the three Rs and instead to focus on the three Cs, creativity, curiosity, and criticism. Nothing earth shattering in the book, but a good reminder that I can do better.
