The following article by Head of School Paul A. Burke originally appeared on November 18 as a blog post on the #GivingTuesday website: Sir Ken Robinson, in his well-traveled TED Talk, makes a grand claim that schools drain creativity from unwilling and unknowing subjects. Schools, it seems, take a young mind inclined towards imagination and confine it to the boundaries of rote and reduction.
Every Thursday, several Nightingale high school girls and I go the Young Women's Leadership School on 106th between Park and Lexington. There we lead a debate club for their middle school students in which we teach basic public speaking and debate skills.
