Killing creativity in education

Not only is this TED talk very funny, but it points out that we are doing our children a disservice by pushing math and science and leaving the arts behind.  Where will innovation come from without a strong emphasis on self expression and creativity?
I am beginning to see a change in the approach in our elementary school with the introduction of the theory of multiple intelligences. It's nice to know that children are being encouraged to appreciate the differences they see in themselves and each another.

someone's been eating homework. . .

What does your dog do when left home alone?  Our dogs just bark.  Thank goodness for that.
