Is Education Today Creative Enough?
Sir Ken Robinson, brings up an amazing point on how creativity has been disrupted and squandered, by our current educational system. The same system of education that been developed in the 19th century in order to prepare more skilled workers for an industrial economy, that needed skilled workers to build certain things. However, that system is no longer working, and in result, education has been fashioning students in a way that robs them of their creativity and individualism, and forcing standardized tests and reducing creative classes. What do you think? I certainly noticed this, as I was sketching away on my notes in math class. :)
