Sir Ken Robinson is one of the foremost critical thinkers in the world today in the fields of creativity, ingenuity, and education.  He is to those fields what Stephen Hawking is to physics. We learn Sir Ken’s views on the best direction for education to change, including No Child Left Behind, Inclusion, ADHD, education and the arts, education for the workplace and equality in schools.

Sir Ken has sampled first hand different types of educational methods.  He was born into a modest income family in Liverpool, the fifth of seven children. He contracted Polio when he was four and was sent to a school for disabled children. Later, he was included in a regular school, went on to university, and then on to an outstanding career in education.  We learn how his background shaped his ideas and provided the foundation for his insightful understanding of education and creativity today.
