Additional Information: This quote is from creativity expert Ken Robinson's 2009 TED Talk in which he criticizes the lack of emphasis on creativity in the educational system. The quote means that education is meant to prepare children for the future, and yet we cannot predict what kind of future these children will encounter when they finish school. Thus, we can't say that the type of education kids receive will adequately prepare them for a career. Watch the full TED Talk here: Ken Robinson - How Schools Kill Creativity
