In this podcast, filled with great humor, David discusses the importance of challenging and expanding the way we all think and reviews some of Sir Ken Robinson’s discussion from his widely popular TED Talk about ‘Killing Creativity’. We have been taught to disregard the creativity that we are all born with and follow the rigid structure of the industrial revolution based education system. David talks through his experiences of being disregarded and looked down upon by teachers and counselors when he was in school, and how the educational system is broken in the way they judge just a small portion of what is truly important in children.
