Quotations

SIR KENNETH ROBINSON – British educator and author – and rightly regarded as an expert in the field of creativity – Sir Ken was knighted by the Crown for his life’s achievements in 2003.  He led a large-scale investigation/re-evaluation of the British educational system and the significance of creativity in 1998.  He is a fine speaker, a brilliant thinker, and an inspiration to intuitive educators thirsty for student-centered school reform.  He doesn’t address brain science formally, but his work could not be more closely related.
