Practice
"The whole system was invented -- around the world, there were no public systems of education, really, before the 19th century. They all came into being to meet the needs of industrialism" (Robinson 3).
Practice
"The whole system was invented -- around the world, there were no public systems of education, really, before the 19th century. They all came into being to meet the needs of industrialism. So the hierarchy is rooted on two ideas. Number one, that the most useful subjects for work are at the top. So you were probably steered benignly away from things at school when you were a kid, things you liked, on the grounds that you would never get a job doing that. Is that right? Don't do music, you're not going to be a musician; don't do art, you won't be an artist. Benign advice -- now, profoundly mistaken" (Robinson 3).
Floating Quotes
Robinson explains the problem of valuing only certain subjects as intelligent. "And the consequence is that many highly talented, brilliant, creative people think they're not, because the thing they were good at at school wasn't valued, or was actually stigmatized" (3).
Introduce Quotes
Robinson explains, "And the consequence is that many highly talented, brilliant, creative people think they're not, because the thing they were good at at school wasn't valued, or was actually stigmatized" (3).
Incorporate Quotes
"[A]ll kids have tremendous talents" that are "squander[ed]" by the education system. Creativity should have "the same status" and constant reinforcement in the school systems as "literacy" (1).

Remove words, sentences, paragraphs

To change part of the quote, use brackets [ ]

Long Quotes
Quotes of four lines or more are block quotes

Robinson emphasizes the importance of different subjects:
Every education system on earth has the same hierarchy of subjects…At the top are mathematics and languages, then the humanities, and the bottom are the arts. Everywhere on Earth. And in pretty much every system too, there's a hierarchy within the arts. Art and music are normally given a higher status in schools than drama and dance. There isn't an education system on the planet that teaches dance every day to children the way we teach them mathematics (2).
Practice
“So you were probably steered benignly away from things at school when you were a kid, things you liked, on the grounds that you would never get a job doing that. Is that right? Don't do music, you're not going to be a musician; don't do art, you won't be an artist” (Robinson 1).

And the consequence is that many highly talented, brilliant, creative people think they're not, because the thing they were good at at school wasn't valued, or was actually stigmatized" (3).
Combining Strategies
Because schools emphasize certain kinds of skills and knowledge and "[stigmatize]" others, "many highly talented, brilliant, creative people think they're not" (3).
