This is a humorous lecture given with some serious underlying thoughts. Robinson outlines some thoughts about the education system and how it seems to strip child of the creativity. He argues that part of the reason for removing creativity is because sciences are revered as the “most important” subjects in school while the arts, and creative functions in particular, are considered lower forms of education and sometimes even despised. This hierarchy likely comes because schools were designed to make laborers, not thinkers.
