From School Library Journal
Robinson, a highly respected author and lecturer who has tackled many elements of education reform, now directs his attention to parents and other caregivers. It is clear that adults play significant roles in how their children are educated, and Robinson uses this work, coauthored with Aronica, to encourage adults to be active and critical participants. Throughout, Robinson offers sound advice on what counts as a good education and provides practical ways to help make sure any child gets one. The focus on understanding who each child is as an individual and helping them find their own spark of genius is an empowering stance for parents to embrace. Discussions include outlines of adult expectations and children's needs given in a conversational, approachable tone. While Robinson's biases toward creative schools and whole-child programs are evident, he offers an honest view of all the options available, giving adults the tools and insight they need to find schooling that is the best fit for each individual child. VERDICT For adults who are looking for ways to use schooling to help their children achieve happy, constructive lives.—Rachel Wadham, Brigham Young University Libraries, Provo, UT

Praise for Creative Schools
“Creative Schools is one of those rare books that not only inspire and bring a new sense of possibility to the goal of transforming education, but also lay out an actionable strategy. Ken Robinson is leading a daring revolution to change how we understand schools, learning, and, most important, the passion and talent of our students. This is a global game changer and I’m in.”
—Brené 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
‟Ken Robinson’s Creative Schools offers a brilliant and compelling vision for what education must become. His powerful call to action cites wonderful examples where the education of the future is happening today. Don’t miss this important book!”
—Tony Wagner, author of Creating Innovators and The Global Achievement Gap and expert in residence at Harvard University’s Innovation Lab
“Make me care. Sir Ken and Lou turn these three words into a mantra for the future of education. We don’t do education to students, we do it with them. I hope every teacher and every parent reads this.”
—Seth Godin, author of Stop Stealing Dreams
‟Sir Ken Robinson has been a leading voice for radical change in education for decades. In Creative Schools, he not only articulately defines the problem, but also provides a practical road map for transforming the system one school at a time. Far from being a pipe dream, Sir Ken Robinson highlights educators who are leading the charge and revolutionizing education now.ˮ
—Dave Burgess, New York Times bestselling author of Teach Like a PIRATE: Increase Student Engagement, Boost Your Creativity, and Transform Your Life as an Educator
