Do you really think school kills creativity ..???

Everyone always wants to say that, but I think creativity rests within the person. School doesn't make up all of a child's day, so whether they want to expand they're creativity is solely up to them. In most schools, art Is a mandatory class. So to blame the schools for a lack of creativity is more of a way to push of the responsibility of generations of people who weren't interested in helping themselves and they're children become more creative.

      That question is often legitimate, and often an excuse for wanting to diddle around, rather thjan to try to learn how to live within a society.

      Humans vary so much as individuals, societies, and in time, that a generalized question like this is of little use.
