This is a global game changer and I'm in. --Brene Brown, PhD, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Daring Greatly Creative Schools is wonderful and enjoyable. It makes us rethink what real schooling, learning, and creativity mean. --Malala Yousafzai, author of I Am Malala and a Nobel Prize Laureate a Ken Robinson's Creative Schools offers a brilliant and compelling vision for what education must become.
