Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.
From the Nobel Prize site: Interview with Elie Wiesel, December 10, 2004. Interviewer is Professor Georg Klein.
“Elie Wiesel talks about his perspectives on the world after World War II, recollections of his time in concentration camp (5:33), the indifference of the world (12:35), antisemitism (16.34), the importance of education (22:06) and that the tragedy of the Holocaust could have been avoided (24:23).”
