Think about: making a living vs. making a life

Thirteen year old Logan LaPlante asks a couple very important questions in his Ted talk.

“What if we based education on the study and practice of being happy and healthy?” 

He quotes Dr. Roger Walsh who said:

“Much of education is oriented toward making a living rather than making a life.” 

And I think the most profound question he asks is this:

If 200 million people have watched Sir Ken Robinson’s Ted Talk entitled School Kills Creativity (the most popular Ted Talk of all time)… why aren’t there more kids who are going about their education differently?

Good question, Logan.
