About a month ago, we received an email from a current parent, Andria McGhee, bringing our attention to a short TED Talk by Sir Ken Robinson. In her email she wrote, “I saw this great TED talk about creativity blocking in schools all over the world and was inspiring and something that SLOCA tries to harness instead of push away.” We watched it and felt it was worth sharing. His message deeply resonates with SLOCA’s purpose, why we exist and the type of education we provide:
“the education we provide is life-enriching, life-preparing and life-giving; we understand that education is not a means to an end, but a worthy end in and of itself.
We highly encourage you to watch this 20-minute video. In it, “Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.”
Enjoy! And thanks, Andria, for sharing this with our community:
