Education Waist Up

Everyone correlates education to the brain, but what about the rest of the body? In Ken Robinson’s TED talk he explains to us how as the years go by children turn from creative individuals who express their minds freely to adults with zero creativity. Ken mentions that people are not prepared to be wrong, and never prepared to be original which explains the amount of fear that is put into being wrong. Being wrong in today’s society is almost like a crime when it comes to things that matter. The realization that everyone is human is always looked over. Part of the problem is our educators, if excellence is not pursued then what is? That is something I felt all throughout school starting freshman year. Mr. Robinson mentions how in the next 30 years more people will graduate high school and college then ever. This inflates the value of an education and makes it less valuable when it will matter most. Many children do not need to be a mathematics genius’ or in the health profession to become something successful. Creativity comes with doing what you love, and success comes with loving with you do.Image
