Anyone who has delivered a talk to more than 50 million viewers deserves a hearing. He believes creative subjects — drama, dance, art — should command equal status to the core disciplines of literacy, maths and science. A succession of books has followed the talk, expounding and expanding on these ideas. Robinson has a point. Efforts to drive up standards have created an unbalanced system that holds schools to account on crude and narrow measures of learning — often at the expense of the arts, music, sport, humanities and vocational skills.
