Shari Linsley Posted about 3 years ago Has a TED Talk ever influenced you? How? Sir Ken Robinson is my favorite! For years I have bemoaned the education system and my children's places in it. Since listening to his talk, I've gotten off my couch and done something about it. Two of my children have been moved to charter schools. I've become an effective avocate for them and next week I will be speaking before our state legislature on proposed reforms that are detrimental to the charterschool system in New Mexico. I wouldn't have seen myself in this position a few years ago. Sir Ken inspires!
