Critic Reviews

“One of those rare books that not only inspires and brings a new sense of possibility to the goal of transforming education, but also lays out an actionable strategy . . . This is a global game-changer and I'm in.”

Ken Robinson is the world's most potent advocate of global education transformation; his clarity, passion and insight have inspired millions, including me. This book is not only a catalyst, or call to action; it is a manifesto; a practical exploration and celebration of what is possible. Now it's up to us; we must read, react and accelerate the revolution -- Richard Gerver, author of Creating Tomorrow's Schools Today Forget the chatter about disruptive technological and economic forces in education. Ken Robinson and Lou Aronica vividly describe the disruptions that are needed if we are to have quality education in our time. -- Howard Gardner, author of Five Minds for the Future This book is a wake-up call to the emerging global human resources crisis . . . a must-read. -- Pasi Sahlberg, author of Finnish Lessons 2.0 A comprehensive and compelling statement of why creativity matters for everyone, what it looks like in action, and how to get there. Inspiring and so readable you will feel Sir Ken is talking directly to you. -- Andy Hargreaves, author of Professional Capital Wonderful and enjoyable. -- Malala Yousafzai, Nobel Prize Laureate Ken Robinson's thesis is compelling . . . Creative Schools brings together his classroom experience and policy ardour in an elegant, powerfully written manifesto for change. -- Tristram Hunt Guardian One of those rare books that not only inspires and brings a new sense of possibility to the goal of transforming education, but also lays out an actionable strategy . . . This is a global game-changer and I'm in. -- Brene Brown, Ph.D., author of Daring Greatly
