Unconventional Education – “Hackschooling”?

Saw this video today, which was both impressive and inspiring (can’t believe this kid is a 13-year-old giving a TEDx talk). It really made me wonder about the traditional education system. Are we really killing creativity? On the one hand, motivated and self-guided learning is great. But on the other hand, would we be creating kids who cannot “fit in” within the predefined boundaries of society? Are parents doing their kids a disservice by not properly equipping them with the tools to survive in a conventional world?
