Educated Out of Creativity

One of my schoolmates posted this in our forum this morning, I thought it was great and wanted to share.

“Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.
Music, Creativity and Art all go hand in hand.”


This I think the quote I liked most was “educated out of creativity”.
When I was teaching I found this to be the most frustrating part. Yes, I was an art teacher and I kept trying to create lessons where my students could explore, innovate, etc. but all they wanted to do was “exactly what I (the teacher) wanted to get a good grade.” They were 9th-12th graders. ‘nough said.
