Last week TED, WNET, PBS and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting hosted an on air forum on how we can better inspire both students and teachers.
Among the many esteemed educators was an incredible poet, Malcolm London. His poem, High School Training Ground takes a beautiful, critical look at what high schools give students – the dynamics of poverty, society, empowerment and education in Chicago.
London recently won the Louder Than A Bomb poetry contest. He is also a passionate advocate and activist for youth education. He’s this week’s Creativity in Action subject for his brave and beautiful use of words.
